the Dell Mini 1010 should be on A10 with an upgrade available to A11 (which is only needed for WWLAN) mine is on A10 (it shipped that way in August of '09), are you sure you have a 1010 not a 1011 (10v)?

Dell Mini 10 (Obsidian Black 1010), 2gb RAM, 1.66ghz 533mhz FSB (Z530) processor, A10 BIOS, 1 Terabyte (1000 GB) WD Scorpio Blue Hard Drive (5400rpm), Intel GMA 500 Integrated Graphics, TV Tuner, Bluetooth 2.1 module with EDR, 1.3mp Camera, 1366x768 HD Screen, Wireless 1510 b/g/n mini card, 6 cell (56WHr) Battery, 4gb SDHC, 64gb Flashdrive, Targus Netbook Chillpad, Targus Sport Case, Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 (500gb)/Windows 8.1 (500gb) (Dual Boot)

Did you ever get this problem fixed? Did updating the bios fixed your problem. I am currently having the same issue. Hard drive not detected. swapped out the drive and same thing.
