machine won't start

I tried to install dfly 3.0.2 on an old amd64 box.

When setup was in the configuration phase it didn't allow setting
passwords with : or other characters.

At that point I hit hard (cold) reset and since that time the machine
won't leave the BIOS startup phase (POST?).

Took out the CMOS battery for a minute to no avail. Anything else I
should try? Is it possible that the ROM or CPU has been damaged by
the installer? I can't even get into the BIOS via DEL.
I'll take out the CMOS battery overnight and try tomorrow.

Thanks for any help.
