Default PLEASE HELP with Rooting.

I know, this is all over the place. I'm just very new at this and have been given the reach-around by these outdated tutorial videos for the past few hours.

Here's the scoop:
I'm running Windows 8.1 through Parallels 9 on my Mac Mini.

The root video for Mac didn't work for me either (so, I'm sorry).

ANYTHING and EVERYTHING I've tried so far, has come back with an error message.

And I have followed each video STEP-by-STEP.

(sorry, I had a Nexus 5 that sustained INTENSE water damage a few hours ago, so I'm already upset at the contrasting difficult between rooting both phones).

Please, someone help me out. Every video I've watched was posted almost a year ago.

I'm running Android 4.3 - and drivers aren't working on Windows 8.1.

Thank you so much to anyone that helps.

Most of the guide here will work but not on a vm type. It has to be native. Either duel boot microsoft(witch most of the tools and guidance are built from because of majority rules) or find a pc. Friend or family and start there.

Here's the tutorial for MAC

the only difference is you need the updated versions of TWRP / CWM (TWRP 2.6.3.3 preferred)
