How to flash/unbrick Motorola devices using mfastboot (moto-fastboot)

Those using Windows 8, 8.1 & 10 must have discovered that when trying to flash Motorola devices using RSD Lite, after connecting the device to PC the device does not appear under device properties or model so you can't flash it. You might even go further installing all sorts of drivers just to make it work and still end up in vain.
On a normal adb/fastboot package can flash images to all android devices. But the Motorola system.img is too heavy for the normal adb fastboot package to flash so that's why we go for mfastboot Motorola own customized fastboot.
This  tutorial will show you how to flash Motorola devices using mfastboot (moto-fastboot) which is able to flash that system.img file.
You can also use this tutorial on Windows 7 and below especially if you just want to flash just specific parts on the device
