Check your grounds and clean your terminals. I once had a car that would not start. Hooked booster up to it and it still wouldn't start. Took the terminals off the battery, cleaned them up and it fired right up without any additional boost to the battery.

Try to turn the engine over with a breaker bar. If it spins then you have an electrical issue. If it wont spin and is seized then there is no point in going any further until you get another engine.
