The issue will be the fact that you're on stock android and trying to boot a custom recovery image. You must either be rooted or have a custom ROM otherwise the system will wipe over the custom recovery and put back the system recovery, this is why you are getting the android with the exclamation mark in it.
You can also, once flashed a recovery image, is to boot immediately into recovery on the first boot after flashing the recovery image, thus not giving a chance for the system to overwrite the recovery
