Same thing happened to me. I was upgrading on a PC, using Windows XP.
I thought I'd bricked. Took it to the Apple store and the Genius wiped it ( I had backed up before attempting iOS 5 install.)
She loaded 5.0 for me and Ta-Dah!

I'm saving enough cabbage to get a Mac. Until then none of my devices are getting close to my clunky old PC.

A colleague of mine builds them as a hobby. He swears by Radeon. That's cool that you BYO. Better than giving your money the Dell (Alienware)
or HP (Voodoo).
