I have htc sync, but when I try to sync it, it says it cant find Htc Sync on computer, but I am trying to root using htc unlock method, but when I'm in the CMD, after typing

fastboot oem get_identifier_token

all I get is

< Waiting for Device >

I also tried Fastboot Devices, but nothing shows, so Im assuming its the drivers with windows 8. I tried manually installing the drivers from the sdk, I used the ADB interface driver, and also the Bootloader interface still nothing, AHHH!!
I dont want to go back to windows 7 and lose all my stuff!!

Edit : And yes I have usb debugging mode on, and on fastboot usb during cmd command.

Try rebooting your pc. Then put your phone in factory recovery mode then plug your phone into your pc and it should install the drivers.

Did you uninstall the old drivers first??? If not you should and then reboot. Then once your up and running go to desktop mode from the metro menu, then open up task manger and see if htc sync is running, if it is then kill it. Then put your phone into stock recovery mode and plug it into your pc and it should install the drivers.

Try to reinstall htc sync.

If that wont work then I think you have to try to install the driver manually by going into device manager> click android 1.0 device > update driver >browse my computer for driver software >Let me pick from list >have disk > navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\extras\google\usb_driver.

choose then Android Bootloader Interface

Alright, I got it, stupid HTC Website said to create a new folder with just 3 files. Which is dumb, cause I threw those 3 files back in my tools folder, and wa-la, it worked. Thanks anyways guys.
