You need a bootstrap code to initialize things and pass the CPU to OS kernel code which will most likely be written in ASM and you can code the rest of the Kernel including HAL and Interrupt handling in C (not C++). I recomend you to download some simple open source OS w/ thier source like minix or a minimal linux distro and check the source. No easy task to build an OS from scratch.
