Looking for a bootloader for a PC

I am looking for a piece of software that would sit in the boot sector of a
hard disk and load an application thus making possible an embedded
application without having to use an OS. Source code is needed. The
application will be coded in C or C++ using the GCC compiler.

please reply to this newsgroup.
Thank you

Check out SYSLINUX, http://syslinux.zytor.com/ ; it has all the code
to run 32-bit gcc-compiled code with a simple API in addition to any
functions offered by the BIOS.

If you look at http://www.beroset.com you will find public domain source
code loader.asm and a web page of explanation about how it words.
However, you'll need to set up the registers and go into 32-bit
protected mode if you're going to use gcc.  The loader currently does
not do that.
