Before start, first check if you can reach download mode, like this:
- remove the battery
- now keep power button pressed for one minute without the battery (reset)
- insert battery and try 3-buttons combo for download mode (volume down & power & home buttons)
if you can reach it, remove battery again, then just go like in upper post, find ROM for your region. Those ROMs get flashed with PIT file which makes proper re-partition again and after it you should have good working stock i9000. Then you can root it and flash whatever you want. Insert battery again short before start, when Odin is already prepared with files, because i9000 likes to "asleep" if download doesn't start soon after entering the download mode.
Thank you for your support. I tried what you said but still was unsuccessful on my computer. I then redownloaded the drivers transferred your files and the drivers to a fresh Win 7 32bit PC and Odin detected the phone
I was able to unbrick using your files and the stock rom... seems Win 8 64bit was causing problems here.
