I put my phone into DFU mode, download the newest redsnow, and attempt to install.

Redsnow starts up, I click on Jailbreak, it goes through the first couple of steps, then says waiting for reboot. My phone turns back on and Redsnow stalls.

I am on Verizon running 5.0.1, never jailbroke before and I have a windows computer.

What should I do?

What device? If on vista/win7, run redsn0w in winxpsp2/3 mode, run as admin, disable antivirus and do redsn0w 9.10b3 extras/select ipsw/ browse for predownloaded 5.0.1 ipsw for your device.

Disable antivirus and do redsn0w 9.10b3 extras/select ipsw/ browse for predownloaded 5.0.1 ipsw for your device before doing jailbreak. If still the same, try another computer.
