Ways to get Windows to recognize your Xoom
From reading the title of your thread you're using the wrong recovery too, you should be using
ClockworkMod 188.8.131.52 (R4c) (New 6/10/11)
or this one.
Also take a look at this thread.
[HOW] Rookie Rooting, Flashing And UnRooting Under One Roof
The device is visible with "adb devices" when honeycomb loads, but just not in fastboot mode. I am using the standard cable, and have usb debugging on. Also note that fastboot was still able to unlock my bootloader despite adb not seeing anything.
Well the instructions I'm following suggest the one I'm using, however, I will be happy to use the one you suggest if it will allow me to use this for ICS;
[ROM][Nightly][ICS] Team Eos European 3G (GSM) Nightlies (umts_everest/MZ601) - xda-developers
Unplug your xoom from the pc and reboot both devices and replug the xoom back into your pc and see if it's recognized.
Done that. Frankly I think the issue cannot be recognition, because it still does listen to fastboot when I use "fastboot oem unlock". What other reasons could it be the file won't load. I have the feeling it isn't seeing recovery-Tiamat-R4c-100611-1150-cwm. I've placed copies in both platform-tools and tools directories, just to be sure. Since there is a fastboot exe in both of them. This error is exactly what it would say if the file didn't exist.
Lots of user having error using this SDK platform. To make it easy, use EasyADB instead is much prefer.
Something choked there, do this steps
- Unplug your Xoom.
- Uninstall all the Moto drivers and ADB/SDK.
- Download and run this cleaner for your PC:here
- Once done, restart your PC.
- Install Window Media Player 11 in your PC, if you haven't.
- Reinstall your Moto drivers and EasyADB
- enable your Xoom USB debugging.
- Connect your Xoom to the PC( Use USB port from Motherboard, usually located at the back of your PC)
- Try the process again.
Use: Tiamat recovery or Rogue recovery.
You can get the files as ggrant link to you at "Rookie Rooting" that similiar link at my signature.

I'm downloading EasyADB now. I read on a forum that I should root prior to using this? I'm not savvy on this sort of thing and don't know what it means to root in this context. Does it mean to unlock my bootloader?
I found an interesting thread, seemed to be exact same issue.
xda-developers - View Single Post - Error: can not load recovery-Tiamat-R4c-100611-1150-cwm
He said the issue was solved by directing it to the file, rather than just the file name itself. I will try this now and let you know how it comes out.
Yes, that was the issue all along.

Yes we here at Xoomforums know about it too
You need to put the images in sdk folder which you run the ADB command.
But as lots of new user have difficulty managing SDK Platform, that the reason the Dev came out with EasyADB, ggrant3876 and me came out with Rookie Rooting guide
If you can get it done, great and best wish to you
We will be happy with your success.
If you still stuck...Let us know. We will try to assist as possisble.
