Any help to get the phone up and running would be appreciated.
Windows is your problem, not the phone and defo not bricked, HBOOT 1.44 doesn't work with windows 8+ you need windows 7, or you can try Ubuntu live CD/USB
If you search the forums there is a potential fix around here somewhere, some hacked drivers etc, I don't have links to hand at the moment, sorry, for some it works, for others it doesn't.
