I tried the above solutions and was not able to resolve this issue until I got in touch with a user from the Dell Forums.
They gave me a program that fixes the BIOS reading the drive as 0mb.
My drive is a STECH 8GB SSD drive std that came with Mini 9.
This app needs to be ran from dos so you need to either make a bootable USB drive or find some other means to get to a dos prompt.
(Sorry for the cruddy pics)
I forgot to take a picture of the bios before I ran the app but it looked the same as the picture below other than the "HDD Size" showed 0MB.
Then I ran the application provided to me which will !!!!!ERASE YOUR HARD DRIVE!!!!! and looks like the following when ran. App attached.
