How to enter this mode for drivers? Vol up + power enter recovery mode. And do we need to have unlocked bootloader for that or what we have to do? Because it's not working

When I am doing this, nothing popup in device manager, if I keep up holding volume up + power phone is rebooting every time, when I stop holding this buttons my phone goes to recovery. What am I doing wrong?

Even on 4.2.8.2a it's not working. Always error in SP Tool.
