c++ operating system

Posted 02 February 2010 - 09:26 PM

How do you make an operating system in C++? I am not very experienced in this programming language, but I have some basic knowledge. I use the compiler code::blocks. Please help! If you can tell me anything about creating an operating system in another programming language, please, please do!!

Operating systems are incredibly complex and pretty huge pieces of software so there isn't really anything that anyone is going to be able to tell you in under 50,000 lines or less that will be very useful. I would recommend getting a book about operating system design or perhaps reading the wikipedia article about operating systems.

Research "boot loaders" & see if you are up for the challenge. That's just the tip of the ice burg.

If you do not have much experience in C (or any other compiled language), then don't even think about making a working operating system.
