I'm so sorry to note that it could be hard to find... Unfortunately, these kinds of arts are moving to the esoteric domain... :-)

With ASM... you see, it's more about the architecture and instruction set of the CPUs, not so much of a language itself. The bootstrap method I used was starting from the inline assembly (in C++, for example), but doing it under Windows and protected mode is practically useless as everything is... well, protected. It's good to start with something like MS-DOS, which runs in real mode, launch protected mode in assembly and start experimenting.

Yes, it looks like I forgot to mention that if you need to bootstrap OS from the bareback, you would need to start with Assembly... Sorry. But isn't that obvious? :-)

Good luck,
