Restoring E30, No Spark...

So my latest project is a 92 325i e30, it's been sitting in a barn for about 9 years and I'm trying to get it running again. So far I have changed the oil and filter, spark plugs, emptied and refilled the gas tank, fuel filter, added injector cleaner, new battery, coolant flush, changed power steering fluid, air filter, checked all the fuses, topped off the brake fluid, and of course pumped up the tires. The car ran fine when it was parked back in 04 but when I tried to start it the engine would turn over, and sounded healthy, but wouldn't start. I pulled one of the spark plugs to see if there was any spark but it wouldn't fire. Any ideas on what would cause this? All of the electrical connections looked good. If the immobilizer is preventing the car from starting would it allow it to turn over? Also when I had all of the spark plug boots disconnected from the plugs a friend tried to start it not realizing the boots were not connected. Would this have done any damage? Thanks for the help, clearly I don't know much about the electrical side of an engine
