fastboot boot recovery.img
downloading 'boot.img'...

booting...
OKAY [ 0.001s]
finished. total time: 1.194s

so I try flash recovery:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

Hold down the power button and vol down button untill the phone reboots to the bootloader again. Make sure its in fastboot mode and type
Code:
fastboot erase cache
Then type
Code:
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Then
Code:
fastboot reboot-recovery
Hopefully it will boot into recovery.

only works on hboot 1.44.

as mentioned above hold POWER + VOLDOWN (under a bright light), when it reboots let go of POWER but keep holding VOLDOWN, once in bootloader follow steps above to flash recovery

i think "fastboot reboot-recovery" doesn't work (at least for me), so do a "fastboot reboot-bootloader" then enter recovery.

I had the EXACTLY same error as you. Didn't know what caused it. After about 20 attemps I finally managed to flash it. I changed the USB Port several times... But I didn't do any other things. Just try and try and try again. And whenever your screen freezes, do what @nkk71 said.

Volume down + Power button for several seconds...
