well minipcie follows the following pin outs
Mini PCI Express Bus Description; MiniCard Interface for the Laptop PC
we should be able to tap pin 36 and 38 for the D+ and D- and look for 5V and GND signals somewhere else on the board to get a internal USB port installed.
my 1012 is the value edition and it doesn't have the headers soldered on for the other 2 mini-pcie slots. Others have tried to soldier their own mPCI-e headers but their cards failed to power on, so I am not sure whether the D+ and D- usb signals on the minipci-e slots on the board are enabled.
that said, many people have done it before
