What version of CWM Recovery are you on? An update of the recovery to a newer build might help.

Break me off a piece of that Kit-Kat ROM!

Cool Re: CM11 installation problems

What version of Android are you coming from? Anytime you are switching to a different ROM, especially from a JellyBean (4.3 or other) to a KitKat 4.4 ROM, you must do a clean wipe of your phone prior to installation. It sounds like you tried to do a dirty flash. Boot into recovery, and format data, cache, and dalvik cache, then try flashing the CM11 and Gapps.

If that doesn't work...try this thread. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2302599

OK, first you need to manually boot into your recovery by holding the volume up and down buttons at the same time and then pressing the power button. You should get into your bootloader and then be able choose recovery. I assume you have a backup...so just flash back to your stock android 4.3. Then once you are able to get back into your phone see if you can update your cwm. If updating you cwm turns out not to be the issue then go watch a YouTube video on how to fix the status 7 error. It basically involves copying the zip file you are trying to flash over to your computer and editing one of the files. Goodluck...let me know if this works.

Pretty sure it sounds like he is on an outdated version of cwm, status 7 errors can be signs of old recovery version. Fastboot flash the latest cwm.
