I know there are multiple fixes out there for getting Windows 8.1 to detect HTC phones while in fastboot mode, but some are dependent on whether you have an Intel or AMD processor and USB 2.0 or 3.0. This is the latest fix, and should work on all types of PCs and HTC phones. It worked for me on my computer with Windows 8.1 x64, Intel processor, and USB 2.0.

The issue has something to do with the BOS descriptor in Windows 8.1. It has been fixed in update rollup 2967917.
1. Install update rollup 2967917 for Windows 8.1.
- To check if you have the update installed already, go to Control Panel > Programs and Features > View Installed Updates > type "KB2967917" in the search box.2. Download the attached file Fastboot.reg.txt and change the extension to Fastboot.reg.
- If you don't have the update installed, open Windows Update to install it.
