Tried to root device but it unlocked the bootloader and gives me a red warning.

I can get into fastboot. The device still boots, but obviously everything was wiped and it's stock Android. When I try to go to recovery I get a a Android emote guy with a red warning triangle.

I assume recovery is buggered? Is it correct in assuming that because I can get into fastboot I can simply flash a recovery image and hope for the best? I was trying to load CWM on it. Just want to double check before I go ahead.

The first time recovery said it flashed fine, I went into it and at the bottom it told me that sd couldn't mount, amongst other things that could not mount, including /system/ which is odd because the device is usable.

As long as you can enter fastboot mode, you can flash (factory) images onto your device's partitions.
