I have the Nexus 5X drivers installed properly on Win7 64bit and it shows up in my device manager as Nexus 5x. I can verify that it gets detected as I see it in chrome inspect page. But when i try to do a adb devices or fastboot devices, it wont see the phone. what could i be doing wrong?

And yes I can transfer files when I select MTP mode.

ADB devices was detecting the phone, but fastboot devices wasn't. I had to do the following to get it to work on Win 7 64bit:

  • Reboot Win7 and Press F8 on boot screen and select: Disable Driver Signing
  • Boot phone into bootloader
  • Device Manager you should see an Unknown Device popup
  • Manually install the driver by selecting: android > android adb (screenshot)
  • Then goto command line: fastboot devices

Let me know if it worked or not. If it did, all I ask is thumbs up this post! I spent a good 3 hours to figure it out. No where on the net has a solution that I've found.
