I was installing CyanogenMod when something went wrong and now my phone will only boot to recovery mode. I had made a backup but it somehow got deleted, I don't know why that happened. My computer doesn't recognize my phone when I connect it.

My phone is the Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini and I used ClockworkMod recovery. What can I do now, to fix my phone?
