Hi Ladies and Gentlemen,
Some of you may remember may, while some may not, because I wasn't that famous with you guys.
So let me introduce myself before I introduce my problem. That would create a base for you. I am Shikhin Sethi, a 12 year old programmer, with expeience in C, C++, Java and a little of MySQL. Currently I took up Assembly Language. After a while I got on with trying to make up a OS. Believe me, I know it would take upto 4-6 years, and I also know it wouldnt be the next Windows. ;) Also I am sure I would be pretty simplistic with my design.
So I just started with reading up various articles by searching on google, and various other sites. After much reading on the basics, I decided to go practical. :) I found up this site at the end. http://www.brokenthorn.com/Resources/OSDev0.html
Even though this site was based on Floppy Disks, I was pretty sure I would manage to cope up. This hope vanished when I reached the 5 - 6 tutorial. :'(
These both tutorial focused on multi stage bootloaders using floppies, and includes a OEM block for the formatting. Well it couldnt work on CD Rom even when I tried to change the OEM block specification to a CD ROM.
So do you guys have any ideas on what shall I do on developing this mutli stage bootloaders. Probably and ideas on this OEM block. Probably some other good tutorials.
