you probably could, but i highly suggest NOT using Visual C++. By defualt it has way to many dependencies. For making your own os, check osdever.net and http://www.mega-tokyo.com/forum/ ( near the bottom ). These are resources ive used to build my hobby os. Also, make sure you know assembler, and id recomend you use C to make your first os.
Building an OS as a hobby sounds like a lot of fun. How did you get into building OSes? How often to you work on it?

If assembler is your choice, there are some great tutorials lying around on the Internet; Google is great. Here are some good ones; I suggest you go in order. The last one is the best, but you might want to at least look over the first two to get your feet wet.

I once wrote a bootloader, but if I had continued building on an OS, I would had continued with C - but probably some Assembly also.
