maybe you could just sell it and buy a newer model or better yet, just stick to a REAL hard drive...I personally feel that SSD's are more prone to failure..but its your money.....Good Luck

I got a 10v with 2Gb ram and an intel 40V SSD, I use seven pro 32bits and I ve been very happy with it for 8 months now. the boot time is not great compared to the stock hard drive
yes the AHCI is not supported :-(
I used SSD tweaker to get everything set in seven
in comparison with an atom based netbook with 1Gb, a traditionnal HDD and seven starter, the ssd is quite a good choice altho it s pricey.
I don t mind the lack of space , got a NAS that I can access via ftp when I m away and the boot time issue is not a problem at all if you use hibernate instead of shut down.
I was really impressed with boot time with ubuntu 10.10 (15 sec !) but the overall experience is not better or is not that much smoother than seven, so I ll stick with seven cause I can use a good synchronizing program to keep my files up-to-date with the usb key and the NAS (which I couldn t find on ubuntu)
never tried OSX , maybe when I m old ;o) I guess a lot of people here won t share my point of view...
ps: taking my mini on my bike to go to work , I like to believe it s less prone to failure than a HDD
my 2 cents

I don t have my mini right now, but as far as I remember, I just downloaded it (free version) and applyed the suggested modification for seven
long after that, I saw (last week) an optimisation guide 10 pages long for seven with SSDs , the guide was taking you through different steps on the control panel and the regedit window. all the settings recommanded (appart from AHCI control) had already been set by SSD tweaker. so it does it all in one click basicaly.
here is the long guide , sorry but it s in french altho the screenshots are from an english seven, so you can probably follow the steps
Comment optimiser les performances et la capacité de son SSD : Introduction
I can probably have a look at the settings I used at the time but I don t remember doing anything appart what was suggested. you don t have much to lose just trying it.
edit : as said in previous post, I did NOT disable hibernate
