Homework 2: A splash screen boot sector

In this homework, we use BIOS services to create a "splash screen" boot sector. This requires:

  • reading an image from disk into memory,
  • changing the video mode and palette settings,
  • waiting for the user to press a key, and outputting text on the console.
  • creating a "disk" that contains the boot sector and the picture to be shown,
  • (bonus points) produce a nice-looking, alternative picture to display, in the right format.
