If a list of available networks appears, the WiFi adapter is working. My guess is that it's likely to be a software issue, but I have no experience diagnosing these on Linux.

Typically one has to be able to see the device in Device Manager to remove the driver, if there is no uninstall option. I would ignore this for now.

As for the unknown device, hard to say. Does...

That's actually pretty good as far as the Mini 9 goes. Can you even find the Runcore? The spec for Runcore 64GB was 90/55. The Mini 9 is slow enough that I would not obsess about the SSD speed.

Actually, there are at most two (if not one) that will work. You will find lots of SSDs in the same form-factor, but because the Mini 9 uses a customized wiring of the connector, and uses PATA...

To answer your first question - the Mini almost certainly didn't come from Dell with Win 7 Pro, so it was installed by the previous owner. If you have that product key, you may be able to reinstall...

The 1010 has the processor and RAM on a "daughterboard". This part is a daughterboard with the processor and 2GB of RAM instead of 1GB. I think the CPU is the same.

I don't think there was ever a 256GB SSD for the Mini 9. That oversized 128GB model was the only one of that size, and it's no longer available. 64GB is the practical limit. Make sure that any SSD...

Yes, 32-bit. You'll need to get a 32-bit installer. I'm an MSDN subscriber so I have access to that.

You need to find one that explicitly claims support for the Dell Mini 9, which used custom wiring of the MiniPCIe socket. I think nowadays Kingspec is about all you'll find.

If you read all the thread, there is a way to do this without a floppy drive. But @elastic clearly already has one and it didn't work.

The first thread referenced above is what I would try, but the latter part dealing with "recovery" from a failed BIOS update. However, it seems that elastic has already tried this.

First of all, this is the Mini 10v section, so Mini 9 comments don't necessarily apply. But if I recall correctly the 10v was also 32-bit only and OS X 10.11 does not support 32-bit processors.

I gather it won't even get to a BIOS screen. The BIOS recovery with the floppy drive is the only thing I know of - and if you can't get that to work I would just write it off.

If the BIOS won't load, there's very little that can be done. Given that a Mini 9 is eight years old, I would call it a loss and replace it with something more modern. There are quite a few...

I think it's reasonable to assume that bjd223 is no longer reading this forum. Their last post was from 2009 and it's not unheard of for shared files to go missing after that many years.

I would recommend 64-bit only because you may start to have problems finding 32-bit applications in the future. You don't get "extra memory".
