Edit: I'm going to bed so if you are able to use fastboot, download the factory image pack from https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aos...y-e102ba72.tgz
Extract the archive. Inside are there will be an install script, manually issue the commands contained in the script in fastboot. The only thing you need to add is the location of the .img and .zip files from the archive you extracted e.g. 'fastboot flash recovery c:/Users/name/desktop/recovery.IMG'
There is no reason this will not get you up and running again.

Thanks for your response.
I've followed the instructions in the file. From previous research, I've had these files. My device does communicate with Fastboot. When I give the command for Devices it gives me my serial. Also, when I ask it to reboot-bootloader in CMD it does.
My issue is when I get to "Fastboot flash bootloader-grouper-3.34.img". CMD states "Error: Cannot load bootloader-grouper-3.34.img"
I've followed the commands previous to that. (Erase boot, cache, recovery, system, userdata)
Open the command prompt IN the directly WITH fastboot
Fastboot oem unlock
Then wipe / flash factory images. Fastboot -w update image whatever the image name is.
Then uninstall / delete that stupid toolkit and never use them stupid craps again.
Yes my device is unlocked again, but I still can't get into recovery mode. It just tells me "Recovery Failed" in small text in the upper left hand corner of my N7.
