My advice to you is to buy a copy of Windows 10 Home Edition. It should work fine. At most you will need to download some drivers from the Dell site. It would not be legal for someone to share a copy...

Windows 10 works fine on the Mini 9. That's what I have on it. No need for XP. But, yeah, Linux may be a better option for many. That the 9 is 32-bit restricts you a lot.

I can't recommend running MacOS on the Mini 9 nowadays as you are stuck on a very old and unsupported 32-bit version. A lot of software won't run there. Current Linux or Windows works.

The WiFi card should go into a MiniPCIe slot. If you don't have that either, then you can get an inexpensive USB WiFi dongle.

You don't need ALL of those installers. Many of them are related to...

You will probably need drivers for Bluetooth, the wireless select switch, battery meter and maybe the SD slot. There are certainly a lot of downloads there. I'd also recommend the "Mobile chipset",...

Haven't seen anything about a new XPS15, just the 13. (I have the XPS13 9360.) A 9570 should come eventually.

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.

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.
