Fun with Boot Loaders
PC Bootstrap and x86 assembly
due: 20 November
This lab is one used in operating system courses at major computer science departments including MIT, Stanford, and the University of Texas. The write-up I am using is from Texas: CS372H Lab 1. Everything you need to know is in that lab.
Virtual machine with everything you need to do the lab
Erik Nosar created a Virtual Box Linux VM with all the necessary tools you need to do the lab. You can download the image at: http://eriknosar.com/share/
You can also use Rosemary.
I will give 100XP to the first person to create a Virtual Box virtual machine with the necessary tools to work on this lab. (qemu and the compiler tools necessary to compile the lab)
submit and XP
This project is worth 300xp.
To submit your project, first do a make clean, zip your project folder (which should include a text file containing your answers to the lab’s questions) and email the file to submit.o.bot at gmail.
