I ended up with Ubuntu 12.10, LXDE to get a bit of extra speed and a couple of other tweeks (turn off swappiness and installed a few extra packages).
It runs similar to how XP ran except the flash acceleration is better, I would say it's not quite as snappy as XP was (I might try and reduce the level of background processes/services to free up ram) but at least it runs and it is free.
No license issues!!
Worth trying if you want to get a 1010 revived and don't want to waste time with windows 8
cheers all for your replies!

the part number for the 2gb daughterboard with the z530 processor is "R031P", you can find it on ebay, I upgraded mine quite a long time ago, Win 8 runs nice, I dual boot mine with Win 7 (500gb) and Win 8 (500gb), but I also have the HD display, I got mine totally maxed out with every available option at the time, I also upgraded my hard drive to 1 terabyte (1000 gb) so mine is a pretty mean little machine, but now I got my iPad and hardly even use the Mini anymore and my big HP laptop has also taken a back seat to the iPad also....

Is there any previous step (bios / any system update?) required to do before i change to R031P?
or i can just off the power, change it, power on... n it would be ok?
actually, im not going to use it before; but my school providing ancient computer that i really cant accept to use it. so i take my mini 10 out and wanna to use it mainly for work.
but i find that its not so smooth in daily using sometime,
would it be better if i install Win7 Professional than Win7 Ultimate?
seems not require so much to hardware?
really thank you!!!!!!
