    I think there's a definite difference between the USB drivers needed for adb and those needed for fastboot.

    The PDAnet and/or the Naked 1.7 drivers referenced here http://androidforums.com/galaxy-nexus-all-things-root/470831-how-all-things-root-samsung-galaxy-nexus.html#post3711706 seem to do a good job of handling both adb and fastboot.

    Be sure to verify your connectivity with "adb devices" and "fastboot devices" in each proper mode (adb will work with "regular" Android booted as long as USB debugging is enabled; adb will also work while your phone is booted into custom recovery; fastboot will only work when your phone is in fastboot / bootloader mode).

    Good luck!
