Question Wanting to write a boot loader for AMD

Hey guys, I have no idea if any of the boot loaders are open source or how hard it is to write a boot loader but im pretty google savvy and computer savvy, I want MAC on my PC because its cheaper and its just awesome to tell people hey, ever donew this? and their like OMG coolll.

so yeah, iv tryed TONS of boot loaders through Virtual Box. iv gotten the kext boot loader to work once then it didnt get anywhere after that i dont remember wich one was probobly an EFI EMPIRE AMD one anyways, I wanna know what boot loaders are available as open source, AND if there are any tutorials on what any of it means, where i can start to learn how to write a boot loader based off of ones that are already open source, (im pretty sure their all open source or at least thats what iv read who knows) but yeah anyways, i want info on how to make a boot loader...

All bootloaders will already work with AMD cause they actually are not platform specific. I believe what you're trying to achieve is an AMD-compatible kernel ?
