You can try to return it to newegg and get a replacement PATA or try to sell it on eBay.

My mini 9 is resting disassembled waiting for my new runcore... :|

I successfully modded my M9 last night. I don't know if I'd do it again, it just didn't feel right taking a dremel to the little guy. All is working well with my Runcore 70mm 64GB drive installed. Everything seems much faster than before. I did align the partition using diskpart, just in case. Since I now have the room, I'm going to install Office next and a few VMs.
