I have been tearing my hear out trying to convert my .BIN file to a bootable .ISO. Everything I try does not seem to work.
I am working on the Windows platform trying to create an OS with a custom bootloader.
Can someone please help me? :)

Come on. Try to help yourself just a little.

You've been given a method to achieve your aim. What's wrong with it?

The methods that I have tried either give me errors as the output or it will work but when i boot it the OS will just freeze.
I get the concept and I am trying my best to troubleshoot or create my own method

If your OS loads, but then freezes, that would seem to indicate a flaw in the OS rather than in the boot process.

Really, it's much easier using an existing loader, such as Grub, rather than writing your own. That way you can get on with the interesting stuff.

There are a host of things that you could be doing wrong. Without details of the error messages you get, or a sight of your code, there's little point in guessing.
