adb reboot bootloader
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
error: cannot open 'recovery.img'

I've seen this before for window users. I just throwing this out for you to try. When you rename a file in Windows in auto adds extension to know file. So if you renamed it to recovery.img it could really be recovery.img.img. I know it's like that when you rename a zip file in Windows. Try either re download it an not rename it an just flash or rename your current file just recovery an try that with regular commands

The recovery.img is in the platform-tools.. and I have tried re-downloading it.. Im really not sure what the problem is

EDIT: Im also not sure what the pipe properties error is about.. I don't think that was happening before, but I'm not 100% sure.

EDIT: Ok, I guess I'm good. I just did it again, this time using a different usb cable and a different usb port. Weird, but it appears to have worked. Thanks all who helped.
