Aweapons, I saw your private message to me but a forum glitch prevents me from responding that way.
I don't know anyone who has modified the BIOS for the 1010 (or any of the other Minis), and adding an AHCI mode is, I think, beyond the capability of a modder working only with the BIOS binary. I'm also skeptical that changing to AHCI would suddenly make your SSD
perform better in any noticeable way given the CPU you have. A lot of the limitations come from the chipset and not the BIOS.
What tends to happen with these older SSDs is that their internal tables fill up and can only be recovered if TRIM mode is supported or Secure Erase, but your SSD
supports neither of these.
Your drive is already SATA. You could replace the drive and probably would find better performance.
I'll also note for others reading that while this forum section is about the Mini 9 (910), Aweapons is asking about the Mini 10 (1010) model which is VERY different.
