So you're unlocked and have a custom recovery but SD won't mount?
Do this, boot to fastboot
fastboot erase system -w
That will format system, data and cache and being SD is emulated on data you should be good
Now boot back to recovery and you will need to use adb sideload to flash your ROM
adb sideload nameofrom.zip
And if gapps are required do the same
adb sideload gapps.zip

If this isn't clear just search a bit or ask again what your not sure of and I'll help ya

Yes, fastboot only works in bootloader and adb only works in recovery and os
There are many threads across xda that explain why you may loose a huge chunk of your memory when flashing factory images along with answering how to fix this issue
Again if you need further help feel free to ask

So after factory restart is all Ok - again 32gb. But i am on stock rom without root with locked bootloader..
In recovery mode i cant see SD card space




I cant push any file in recovery..
And SD card in recovery is undiscoverable as i make picture..

So root is for me imposible
