1. Become a very good programmer (I can't help their because I'm not one).
2. Devote hundreds(if not thousands or more) of hours of time....
3. Read many many websites and books on the subject.
4. Tear some hair out.
5. Possibly success.

Like I said I'm not much of a programmer but I am certain of this, being proficient in a good compilable language and also assembler for the target architecture before starting would mean you wouldn't have to write it all twice, once when your learning and again when you know how many mistakes you made while learning.

I can't say I understand it myself but a good place to start might be the boot process and boot loader. Seeing the sources to something like grub might help.... Then the system kernel, followed by programs that call function in the kernel?

If you stick with it your skills at google searching will advance with the project ;).

I made a program in visual basic, then I made it executable and I made a setup for this program to let others install it in their computers. it can installed properly, but the problem is this: it can't run without installed visual basic on that computer...

what should I do to function it properly without the installed visual basic?

You need to use a proper installer like the one that comes with Visual Basic. It will then incorprate all the VB runtime librieas that are required into the installer.
