Setup adb correctly, install the correct drivers and see you have the latest bootloader (HHZ11k) installed to be able to flash CM11. Ans as said read the stickies and OP`s of the dev threads.
USE Search: /this thread /all threads/Google before posting your question, you`re most likely not the first one having this issue

Specially do always a backup! A nand backup is preferred. The nightly are not always stables and sometime you are stuck in bootloop. Anyway enjoy :thumbup:
