Rename the patched boot.img to "boot.img", then place the patched .img in your fastboot folder on PC then type:

fastboot flash boot boot.img

When you place the file in your fastboot folder, you don't need to include the path to the file in the command, it automatically looks for the file in the fastboot folder by default when you do not enter a path. Renaming the file to "boot.img" isn't necessarily required, but, it does simplify things for fastboot and makes the command easier to remember and type.

The same applies if you want to flash a system.img, recovery.img, etc.. Just change the name of the file to "system.img" or "recovery.img" and place it/them in your fastboot folder and it simplifies your commands to:

fastboot flash system system.img

And

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

Also, try this for the failed command

You've to unlock device's bootloader. Hence 1st of all if you want to manage the / operate on the bootloader you have to move device into fastboot mode and then run on device if it's launched 2015 or later

Code:
fastboot flashing unlock
[code]

instead of the outdated

[code]
fastboot oem-unlock

The platform tools you actually use are meant to be used with Google devices only.
Use the Android USB-tools provided by your device's manufacturer.
