Operating System Development

KRYPTONIAN1111 asked:

Open original thread
I am a second year 4th semester computer science student and I want to make an OS for my fourth year major project. I intend to write the kernel in c or c++ as these are the languages I am most comfortable with. I do not know assembly.
I want the OS to be like the DOS i.e. without a GUI and the OS should perform the most basic of operations like make a file , delete a file and display a file, that is it.

Please could somebody guide me about where should i start from, what all should I study and the recommended books.

When answering a question please:
  1. Read the question carefully.
  2. Understand that English isn't everyone's first language so be lenient of bad spelling and grammar.
  3. If a question is poorly phrased then either ask for clarification, ignore it, or edit the question and fix the problem. Insults are not welcome.
  4. Don't tell someone to read the manual. Chances are they have and don't get it. Provide an answer or move on to the next question.
Let's work to help developers, not make them feel stupid.
