You can't flash the bootloader through recovery, at least not the last time I checked. The bootloader has to be flased through odin but Odin doesn't flash bootloaders, modems, etc.. We're you possibly referring to the boot.img? If so, that's a kernel.

yea i kinda need the kernal so i can boot kitkat
You can grab a kernal from nearly any KitKat firmware. Download a stock rom to get a stock kernal or a custom rom for a custom kernal. Extract the rom using winrar,winzip, 7zip, or your favorite unzipping utility and you should find a "boot.img" in the root of the extracted folder. Flash the boot.img in Odin in the third slot down (i think it is labelled "PDA"). You can't use the second slot (kernal) because that slot will only allow "md5" files and the boot.img has no md5 in it. I hope this helps because I couldn't find anything KitKat related on my PC, sorry. Good luck and let us know if you have any more questions or problems, okay?

EDIT: I didn't realize when I posted this but Trex888 uploaded it for you in the post before this one (third link) has your boot.img in the download. Grab that one :)
