Default Installing Bootloader with Fastboot?

From this thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2570807

Bootloader Partition Images
WARNING ONLY ADJUST PARTITIONS IF YOUR DEVICE HAS A WORKING BOOTLOADER WITH FASTBOOT
(Some early devices have a limited bootloader with no menu and no fastboot mode. If this is so, do not modify your partitions unless certain of your actions. A bootloader is a special device starting partition that later starts the extended boot partition. The bootloader gives fastboot access to re-partition in case of mistake.)
Forgive me my lack of knowledge, i am still new to the android-world and rooting and flashing. And i couldn't find a answer to the above mentioned problem (all threads that show up are "doing xyz with fastboot", but none that says what to do if there is no fastboot at all).

So, in the (hopefully rare) situation where I obtain such a device with limited bootloader, is this a problem? Or am i able to install/flash a working bootloader with fastboot?

Rootjunkys tool is based on kit kat.
Tablet is running android 4.2.2.
Tried half a dozen methods but can't get boot loader to show on screen.
Surely someone must of encountered this problem.
Please HELP.
