Default Fast boot and recovery

So I'm preparing to do n4 conversion. However, as I'm making sure everything is ready to go I noticed the only way I can get into recovery is through an app called quick boot, is there something special in the boot loader to get to recovery ? I see no selectable options.

When in boot loader, fast boot is in red , but I can not pull up fastboot devices , when I try to do fastboot reboot, it just sits and stays at waiting for device. Under device manager it says android with a yellow exclamation point when in boot loader.

Lgnpst notices my phone both in download mode and when on, but not in boot loader. I just want to make sure I'm completely set before I do this. Please help!

Btw, all adb commands work, fast boot options comes up , but can't do anything in fast boot mode. I'm not that much of a noob, is there anything I can try ?

Its not about what you know , but who you know.

Had the same problem. My drivers weren't installed right turns out. I just ended up using another PC that I knew for sure worked with adb.

I know for sure my adb is working though. In fastboot mode, I look in device manager and under other devices, I get android with a ! When the phone is on, all drivers are working perfectly. I'll try another computer for sure, just baffles me why everything but fast boot works :-/

Figured it out with help from kaerey on irc. Had to go into drivers and search manually for the driver.

1: get into boot loader
2. Open device manager
3. Click on android with yellow !
4. Select update driver
5. Search manually
6. Select android devices
7. Select Google under manufacturers
8. Select fast boot
9. Install and enjoy having fast boot again

To access recovery in boot loader:

1. Vol + twice
2. Power button
3. Your in recovery

Thanks again to kaerey from IRC
