Unless I remembered wrong, it looks like you also updated the main entry to give warnings about the images/partitions. That is a good thing, it really threw me for a loop. I think that the biggest differences with the noob guide were:

(a) The inf wizard included in the lib-usb download has to be used to install the drivers (this is to generate the drivers specific to the 64 bit architecture), but there is a huge amount of difficulty (for me) unless it is done in the right usb mode (holding power key then down key, the only time to use the fast boot utility) and not ever in the default usb mode (else you can't copy the image over when you need to). If the Kindle driver is called "Kindle" it was done in the right mode, if it is called "Amazon Kindle" those drivers shouldn't be used, because you won't use it with the usb mode that works with the other programs.

(b) Using the 192.168.15.201 ip address (a serious mistake in the noob guide) for the ip address setting (which is set in the network center, under change adapters and then it appears as a local area connection, and the ip address can be changed under properties). And then using putty to ssh into 192.168.15.244!
