Project Overview

Our goal was to implement a basic operating system that can boot on a real 32 Bit Intel Architecture (IA 32) PC hardware and to meet the course requirements. The operating system is required to include at least some form of concurrency support, memory management, device abstraction and file handling.

We have implemented a Basic Operating System (BOS) in C for the IA 32 PC platform based on the GeekOS framework. The BOS software contains the implementation of all six GeekOS projects including a user heap, but no access control lists.
