After flashing successfully viper rom after a full data wipe my phone is now stuck in the Bootloader screen. I can't get to recovery, I can't reboot, and factory resetting does nothing. Help?

Can you reboot into recovery again and enter to fastboot mode?

Can go between fast boot and the Bootloader menu but if I hit reboot, it just comes back to Bootloader. If I pick recovery it just flashes for a second and comes back to Bootloader. I am S-off btw.

unfortunately my HBOOT is 1.44 (I just now read that it needs to be 1.55) My OS is Win 8.1. My work computer is Vista though.

device manager shows nothing connected via USB

if you have a USB stick, just make an Ubuntu Live USB (no need to install, you just make it, then boot the laptop/pc from the USB), check my guide under FAQ #5 (i think) it's very easy and ubuntu doesn't have issues with hboots, drivers, etc...

ok so the guide walks me up to the point of installing fastboot for unbuntu using a couple cmd lines but for my specific situation will I need any files saved in specific locations? I have never used Ubuntu or Linux before so youll have to bear with me.
