Default [Q] Can't install CM11 on Xperia Sola

The problem is that after I flash the boot.img and let the flashtool finish, I reboot my phone to the bootloader(recovery?) and all I get is the Sony logo with XperiaSTE written down the screen, and then it goes into black screen. Rebooting gets me to the same point. I had to flash the stock ICS ROM back to fix it. I want to try again but I have to know what I'm doing wrong. I tried to install the latest CM11 build for Sola. Here is what I did.

1)Unlocked the bootloader
2)Copied the CM 11 and GApps zip files to my phone
3)Flashed the CM 11 kernel provided in the zip(boot.img)

Then the problem started.
And I didn't root the phone since I understood there's no need to with CM 11, am I correct?
Please help and thanks in advance!

I think that all is fine. You just have to get into recovery. Try to press vol up or down when you see sony logo.

Doesn't work I still get a black screen even after pressing the vol up/down button. Man it really sucks.

Default Same problem with Go

It seems to be a trend. We are a couple with a Go that have the exact same problem:
