I'm in London, so it's a little far away 8)
Anyway, the recovery method is explained here:
Dell Mini 9 USB pendrive recovery from failed BIOS flash | fosk.it! 2.0
I never have to do it, but I've used similar methods with desktops.
You need to create a bootable USB disk (floppy, cd, pendrive,etc) and plug into the mini. The USB disk contains the PHLASH16.EXE and bios file.
Disconnect the power and battery.
press and hold FN+B and attach the adapter plug.
If the mini is not completely f*ck the power led will flash an the mini would read from the USB disk, and automaticly update the bios (it would reboot after it's done)
The USB pen drive image in the previous link contains the latest bios A05 so if it works, it would also give you the F11 and F12 keys 8)
