Replaced battery and now car won't start

I left the lights on my 1992 318I convertible and in the morning the battery was dead (of course), tried to jump start the car, it would turn but not fire up. Is there something specific I have to do when this happens?

Can you turn your dome lights on? Also if you have the stock head unit you only have 3 tries to put the code in or it locks the head unit. So make sure you have the code before you touch any of the buttons there.
