I maybe should tell you that I bought it from the shop (in Sweden) with 4.0.3 installed....I have downloaded ROM Manager but it say it must be rooted before I can reboot into Recovery, and when I try flash Clockwork Mode Recovery they ask me confirm model of mobile, but this model is not on the list..

Troubleshooting

If you are stuck on < waiting for device > for longer than 10 minutes, or receive error device not found, unplug the cable from your computer and plug it into another USB port. It's best to plug it into a port on the back of your computer. If this doesn't fix the problem, disconnect your phone, restart your computer and phone, and then try again. If this still doesn't fix the problem, make sure you have installed the USB drivers correctly.

I have been following the trouble shooting advice...and also checked that the drivers are in my laptop..(I for instance have no problem to read the memorycard I have in the mobile in my laptop....The drivers installed in my laptop (Windows 8) are: Handset Win driver 1.02.03.00...Very strange....

USB debugging definitely ticked.

Phone turned on and running and NOT in bootloader mode.

As these are the common mistakes , including the drivers not being installed. J

Maybe a long shot but could you disconnect from the network and temporarily disable security (e.g. anti virus/malware) tools and try again?

First step is to get it rooted - once you get around your current problems and manage that I don't think that you'll be able to use ROM Manager to install CWM. Last time I tried it couldn't find CWM for it. Presumably because the current CWM is unofficial? Anyway - the unlock/root/recovery tutorials mentioned earlier explain hwo to get CWM installed.

Not sure what you're referring to. When I install the drivers:
