The link you provided is for converting a SATA MiniPCIE SSD to a mini-PATA interface. That won't help here.

The problem is that Dell custom-wired the connector. It is a MiniPCIe in form factor, but MiniPCIe normally has SATA, not PATA. Dell used the connector for PATA and then designed a custom SSD for it. Nothing else other than the Mini 9/Vostro 910 ever used this combination, so the market was exceedingly small. As far as I know, the RunC enclosure I have was the only design ever sold.
