I mean real bare bones, bare machine here(no Linux kernel, pre-existing kernel, or any bootloader).

I mean honestly write the bootloading software in direct microarchitecture-specific machine opcode, host the operating system, interrupts, I/O, services, and graphical software and all hardware interaction, computation, and design entirely in binary.

I know this is quite the leap here, but I was thinking to practice first in x86 assembly (not binary) 16-bit style.

Any ideas?
