Default [Q] Win 8.1 PC/ Fastboot not working/ Want to be unrooted with stock

Hi, I'm trying to unroot my phone and put it back on stock. However, I have S-On and my PC is on Win 8.1 Pro which makes fastboot broken (i ran fastboot devices and nothing came up. On ADB, it sees my device) so I can't run Rumrummer to give me S- Off. Can't do the RUU because I need to relock my bootloader but to do that, I need S-Off. What can I do to get around all this to get unrooted and stock?

Hahaha just noticed the 666 But I forgot to mention that I did search for the Win 8.1 drivers but in one thread i saw, they used the win 7 64 bit htc drivers to get it to work. Obviously it didn't work for me, so i'll try finding official win 8.1 drivers. I did see a thread about switching the usb 3.0 drivers to the microsoft intel drivers but my pc uses AMD :/ Any links that anyone finds or extra advice and info is appreciated.

Next milestone is 6,666 ? lol. I found a stock rom reset here This should take care of me getting on stock unrooted. Next problem is to get rid of the tampered sign on the bootloader. Gotta be S-off to do that. So many issues with fastboot though. I"ll try running Rumrunner again when i flash this rom. Not sure if hboot is a prob, it's still 1.44. Actually, would going to stock 4.3 unrooted make the fastboot work again so i can run Rumrunner ?

I have heard updating your hboot to 1.55 will allow the drivers to work in fastboot on Win 8.1

I read that too. On Rumrunner, it requires you to have S-off before you can flash the hboot zip. Unless you know another source that can do it without s off.

That's probably what I gotta do. All my computers and laptops are on win 8.1 too haha. No library will let me do this lol. No relatives with win 7 that live around me. Pretty much screwed then haha.
