Unhappy [Q] Unable to boot

Hey. I'm having an issue. Currently running latest cm-nightlys, well I was. I wiped/factory reset wiped dalvik and cache. Upon installing ROM, Paranoid Android 4.0 Beta 3 It just stood there. Frozen. I felt so cold and alone I waited 10 minuets, still nothing. I held down the power button/volume up to get back to recovery but I was unable to....By the way i'm on clockwork MOD 6.0.xx It's probably my fault, I should've installed TWRP instead. I can get to fast boot....I HATE setting up ADB, but I have it installed, not the full version. Can someone HELP?!!? I'm unfamiliar with the comands, and so forth... Thanks in advanced
Running Android 4.3.1 on CM 10.2 latest nightly .........its so smooth

power button + volume up doesnt take you into recovery. power button + volume down takes you into the bootloader(fastboot), then scroll down with the volume key and choose recovery(while still in the bootloader).

Your install of paranoid wasn't frozen, takes over 15 min to install PA, and the status bar doesn't move either while installing. It is stated in PA ROM section.

Power button + volume up takes you into safe mode does it not?

No. Holding down power off in Android asks you if you want to reboot in safe mode.
