Default dead after shutdown during Windows XP install. What to do?

I just tried installing XP on my CNC computer and it froze mid install so I shut it off. I reset the computer and now not even the bios works. It does the memory test and goes no further. It doesn't show the Primary Master/Slave or drives. I can't even enter the bios.

Where do I start?

EDIT: I succeeded to get into the bios. But still won't boot. It goes to the memory display but won't go to the drive detection. I went into the settings and made sure the first boot device was the CDROM. But it doesn't even check for drives. What do I do? I've taken out the CMOS Battery, unplugged the main power and held power then restarted with no results.
