Default Program a boot software

   I can do some programming on c and c++. But if I need to create a boot software ( for example an os loader) such a software needs to load at the start of the computer. Is such a thing to be made on assembly language ? Where can I see some description of how to do this atleast an intro ,,,

Thanx in advance

This might help:


Look at the section titled "The Boot Process".
