My Xperia M2 doesn't boot to recovery mode

I unlocked the bootloader using the instructions from the Sony developer site. It worked, and then I flashed the recovery software using the flash tool, Emma, but when I press the buttons to boot in recovery mode, instead of this, my OS resets, like factory reset. Everytime. I don't know what to do. I want to try cyanogenmod and I want to flash it, but without recovery I can't, and it's possible to find on the Sony site the stock rom in case I want to come back to the stock OS? And something else. After the reset, the OS looks different. I have features that I didn't have before
