You use fastboot command from bootloader.

When you boot the phone using vol down + power it boots to the bootloader ( a screen with some info about your device and a menu) this is where you enter fastboot commands or run .bat files.

Your phone should indicate whether or not you phone is connected via USB in the upper part of the screen.

You mean, you can't get into Recovery mode? Because Bootloader mode IS the "fastboot" mode..

You can go into Recovery mode, by turning the phone off, then holding the Power button & the Vol Down at the same time.
Then use the volume buttons to scroll to "Recovery" and press Power button to select.

If your Recovery is working as it should, it will take you there..
If not, you can reflash a stock Recovery or Custom Recovery..
