Hi to all,
I have a bootloader and sourcecode in assembly.iwant to use the source code as a kernel after bootloader in a floppy.But my problem is that the binary of kernel is more than 512 byte and is almoste 40k.

what can i do?is there any way?

Other question is that : is there any way to use an .EXE file as a kernel after bootloader?

Yes DexOS kernel is a mz exe, your best bet is to use bootprog as a bootloader as DexOS does.

It is written in nasm, but i have converted it to fasm for DexOS, so if you want a fasm ver let me know.
