'97 528i no start after oil change

Today I put a new head on the 528i, got it finished up and took the car out to be run, and it ran great. So later on this afternoon ran it again then immediately changed the oil, but I didn't do it on a lift.

First I jacked up the right front, noticed that that was the side where the drain plug was so I let it down then jacked up the left front. I jacked up the car high enough where the rear tire was off of the ground when jacking from the front. Anywho, I changed the oil, filter let the car down and replaced the oil. Now the car will not crank. All the while the car was jacked up the key was in the off position, but is there any chance that having the car jacked up as I did caused it to set something in the antitheft where it will not crank any longer?

Any suggestions?

Thanks

You could of accidently put the jack on the power cable from the battery to the engine causing it to come loose, it runs down the underside of the car. Problems like this are really hard to diag without seeing the car in person.
