Default Dell mini & SATA - 06-25-2009, 08:16 PM

Hi guys,

I know that the dell mini/a90 can't support a sata ssd, but what I'm really wondering is why. Is it simply lack of bios support from dell, or is there some hardware restriction that prevents it?

The mini 9 only has a PATA controller, it would need to have a SATA controller chip to be able to use that interface.
