    Starting pc without OS and using it as calculator


    I have a project that requires me to open pc without an OS and use it as a calculator. I have no idea where to begin and couldn't find anything on google either expect for stupid topics about windows' calculator not working. Project also requires me to write a keyboard driver I guess it wouldn't work without driver anyway. Can you give me something to start with?

    I guess you start with looking at writing a bootloader. Then instead of loading an OS, you run your calculator.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
