How to write a custom bootloader?


New Member
New and want to write a bootloader. Nasm and tasm are hard enough to comprehend. Resources are tedious and code is very hard to understand.

G'day Darknez, and Welcome to

omg, you really do like to start out at the pointy end , eh ?!!

I have been using and abusing Linux for the past 5 years or so, and I would have no idea where to start....mainly because I have no need to !! All the necessary work has been done for me at a prior time by someone far more experienced/smarter, than me.

May I ask why you wish to do that....when as you say you are new (do you mean new to to linux or maybe both ??)

Well, good luck with that....I hope you have the necessary talent and determination.

It is not an easy thing to do....especially writing a distro.......there are already thousands of them available.

Good Luck
