Bricked Lumia 920

During installation of the latest Windows 10 Mobile, the installation suddenly stopped and a sad smiley appeared on the screen, where after the phone rebooted and showed me a black screen with text asking me to put in my windows CD. I tried fixing this using the recovery tool, but this resulted in the phone not being able to turn on at all or be registered by my computer. Does this mean that it is gone for good, or do i have other options?

Thanks in advance :)

You can also try the Lumia Software Recovery Tool. (make sure the phone has power too)
