Big problem: cant mount SD&cant connect to PC
Long time reader, first time poster over here.
I'm having a serious problem and wouldn't bother you with it, but i've scrolled through hundreds of forumposts, tried serveral things but haven't find the solution yet. (because the problems in those posts are only a part of my problem :s)
So I hope, by posting and explaining it myself, you guys can help me fixing my HTC One S (wouldn't want to lose it this way -.- )
Here it goes: my phone has been rooted for more than a year now, i've used several ROMs, been through some problems but no big deal and was able to solve them myself).
A couple of months ago, I decided to try the newest Cyanogen (11) mod based on Android 4.4, needed a new recovery but got it installed and working fine.
After a while I installed a Nightly update, and after that the trouble started and went from bad to worse to nearly death :p
first of all the phone kept rebooting at total random moments, enormously frustrating!
so I decided to do another update, after this update, I wasn't able to turn my Wi-Fi on
No big deal i thought, but after a while it began to annoy me, so another Nightly update was incoming
After this update **** really got messy, the message "com.android.systemui has stopped" kept popping up and the only thing I could do was click OK, then it popped back up -> OK -> and so on and so on
so my phone was as good as useless at this point
At this point I've had it with this ROM, so I put another one on my internal SD card (via coupling with my PC): Beanstalk 4.4 STABLE
This new ROM actually was installed as an update of the previous one, so the damned message "com.android.systemui has stopped" was still popping up constantly.
At that point I totally had it with 4.4 and decided to put an older ROM on it with which i've had had a good experience.
And that's where **** got fcked up:
When I go into recovery (CMW 188.8.131.52) and want to access my internal storage, it says "E: can't mount /storage/sdcard0"
So I wanted to connect to my pc to flash a new ROM to my device using Fastboot, but my pc isn't recognizing my phone and neither is Fastboot.
In fastboot, when I try "fastboot device" it keeps searching and doesn't find my device.
My PC however sees my phone, cause I hear the usbconnection sound when they're coupled, but it isn't showing up as a Removable Storage Device.
So to summarize:
- once my phone is booted, i can't do anything apart from clicking OK on the "com.android.systemui has stopped" alert
- in recovery, i can't mount my internal storage
- when 'connected' to the PC, the PC and fastboot can't detect the device.
i've tried it on a pc running W7 and W8
phone is HTC One S S4
I hope you guys can help me out here!

Keep the language clean please. Is the phone readable when you boot up? Have you tried clearing the cache in recovery?
