I want to start my own os from scratch. I am looking for info on making the boot loader, but everywhere I look nasm is used and not fasm. Both can do x86 instructions, but the syntax that the compiler uses is different. Does anyone have any links/references/advice for starting my boot loader. Also dont tell me to use Lilo or Grub. I am making my own.

I am thinking about creating an interpereter for a scripting language so that os development would be faster. What do you think of this idea, I could use something like Python or Java/Javascript?

search this board and internet for "Menuet OS". It is lightweight monolithic OS with GUI, written in FASM.

Hi evil_coder_91!

There's an example of boot loader done by me. It loads a secondary binary file and executes it. It's fully written in fasm. I hope this one helps you Smile

But you're talking about making another High Level Language, the idea is using Assembler for it.

Well I got kicked out of school for three days this morning and also have the weekend. I am going to get serious about learning assembly. I need a tutorial that is going to help me learn asm in the fasm dialect. Please give me the link to one. I have already read through most of the tuts on the main site here.

This kid has been bullying me on and off for at least a month and a half. I finally got sick of it and when he started his crap again, I got up and punched him. And he is like 5 times my size. But he hit me in the back of the head once or twice, but I got him in his right cheek. Maybe now he will leave me alone.

Well, good for you. I hope the bully got punished too. Given you interest in assembly language programming at such a young age, that bully will no doubt be working for you some day.

I hope you find some worthwhile articles to plow through on your "off time".

He wouldnt be smart enough to work for me, I dont think he can do even what we consider "simple". Such as write a program, even in C++ or Java. But I looked at the link you gave me, and none of them are like a tutorial of assembly language using the fasm dialect. Thanks for your help, I will continue looking.

sleepsleep (asm artist formerly known as vbBeginner) translated Icezelion's assembly tut to fasm. You can get it here. The link is located in the upper left and part of his page.
