how to create a kernel bootable image
the things i've tried:
1. Created an asm bootloader code that calls a c function which just prints a hello message.
2. Compiled both and linked them using LD command using a .ld file available.
Steps followed from http://wiki.osdev.org/Bare_bones
I get a kernel.bin file which is of ELF format. I've set up a tftp server using tftpd32 tool and created the necessary pxelinux.cfg files.
Now how do i create a bootable kernel image out of the elf file. The steps given in the above website to create an image doesn't help!!!
Any help is appreciated
What part of the 'Booting the kernel' section is confusing you? If you followed the example all the way then you should have a bootable kernel image;
So again I ask, Where are you having difficulty?
