I can not flash a recovery to my Motorola Atrix HD (Mb886). I have tried Clockwork Mod and TWRP but nothing works. Can someone please help by telling me how or what recovery to use.

Fastboot? Windows? Error? Current Drivers?

Screenshots would be good along with a description of steps you took. The best anyone can do at this point is direct you toward a relevent thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2421418

I went to this thread and did what cyanfox said do but it still did not work. I have a desktop running windows 7 with the lastest drivers for my device. I can go and flash recoveries from any source but when it goes to boot into them all that shows up is am android man with an "X" above him.

You mentioned that you've unlocked your bootloader in an above post. I'm assuming you used Motopocolypse, or Myth Tools (which uses Motopocolypse) to do this?

Did you rename the stock recovery by adding .bak to the end of the file name?

Use root browser to go find the recovery script. Rename it from *.sh to *.bak
