    Fizzbook Spin drivers and software

    Morning all

    We have purchased 20+ of these fab little notebooks, however they have come with xp home and a bunch of pre installed software but no driver or program cd's. We need to get these running xp pro without loosing any functionality. Fizzbook Spin | Zoostorm - Zoostorm Fizzbook Spin 8.9" the zoostorm website doesnt have any downloads listed for it and thus far havent replied to my emails.

    does anyone else have any of these or know where i can download the drivers and most importantly the software that auto rotates the screen?

    thanks

    Kev

    Can you not just hook up a usb cd drive and do an xp pro upgrade over the top of them?

    Yeah thats what im trying now, it wouldnt work yesterday for some reason but its going through now.

    We generally here always format the drives on new laptops and pcs and install a fresh copy of xp pro as they always come with piles of junk software that leaves you with a messy image if you just uninstall them. 9/10 it isnt a problem but with these theres no drivers in the entire universe for them, even with doing a mydrivers it still misses a couple off, plus the software to rotate the screen isnt available anywhere either

    thanks for the reply

    Just had 2 turn up, again with the same OS and me thinking that same thing as you! as we would normally just re-build the machine. I dont fancy loosing any of the software on the machines to be honest as it is quite handy..

    Let me know if you find anything, also.. i have sent an email to http://www.thefizzbook.co.uk/contact.html them.

    You can download all the drivers and software from the links below:
