OS Development

I've got a problem:
I downloaded a bootstrap loader which loads a *.bin file (for example OS.BIN) from a floppy disk.
But how can I create/compile these *.bin files? I'm using nasmw.


RE: OS Development

if you asked about bootsector

you can create ordinary .com file
then rename it as *.bin
then writing it to bootsector
as follow
debug bootsect.com
w 100 0 0 1

you can also disamble it using debug
L 0 0 0 1


you will get assembly code of bootsector

debug bootsect.com

the boot sector must load a kernel from a disk
then passing control to it
