    I have my phone's bootloader is unlocked and i installed all the required adb and fastboot drivers properly.
    when type "fastboot devices" it shows the device attached,
    and also when i type "fastboot oem device -info" its shows the devices status.
    My problem is when i type "fastboot flash recovery xxx.img " it says that cannot load or too many links
    I also tried " fastboot boot xxx.img " it cannot boot into recovery it gives the same error.
    I tried with different twrp versions,I have also tried the same method on my both oneplus 2 and oneplus 3T,I tried different tools too but nothing helps.
    Hoping for your help guys....

    I assume your PC is windows captive.
    You must provide the whole path to your .img file.
    You may try from another computer, preferably free from Win10.

    What is root folder? I tried flashing by keeping it in local disk c, d and also in different ways like placing it in desktop.

    Copy the recovery file to C:/adb <--- that should be your root ADB folder

    Yes bro it works but it is not because of storage location.
    guess what ,its really a cheap thing ! I bought a new multi usb hub just for rs:190 ,And i connected the usb cable with that and tried flashing recoveries. When i randomly searched for the solution a youtuber said that " too many links " error in cmd is because of usb cable or port.When i unplugged cable and connected in laptop's usb port it works fine.
    ANYWAY THANKYOU.
