Which up-to-date OS will work decently on my Inspiron 910?

I’m getting a 64GB Mini-PCIe PATA SSD, and I want an up-to-date OS on it. Not only that, but I need one that runs decently and hopefully looks nice on it. I’m considering Windows 10, and absolutely not Windows 7 (since performance is apparently horrible on it). I’m also looking into running a unique distro of Linux too, and I’m unsure about Windows 8.1.

I have a Mini 9 2GB ram, 64GB STEC SSD I have used it every day for at least 3 years, with Win 10 PRO 1809, its slow but it all works. I use a Netgear 5G WiFI dongle. I have used WIN TO USB 8.1, which is much faster than 10, and runtime USB Mint Cinnamon, and XUbuntu, which are faster than 8.1. The only thing it needs is the CMOS battery, which is not worth the effort or the $10.

i would go with ubuntu, specs are too low for anything higher than windows 7. if you manage to get at least 2 more Gigs of RAM (assuming you have the 2GB model) you could try windows 8.1 but the cpu worries me to be honest and Ubuntu is better than evern right now.

Good Luck

Ubuntu is pretty general, and I mentioned running a UNIQUE version of Linux. I was considering Windows 10 because apparently, it runs way better than Windows 7 on old hardware.

Try Lubuntu. Free. Very fast, intuitive, no bloat, supports all hardware without special drivers. Installs from a usb stick. Thousands of apps covering most of your needs (compatible office, Firefox, etc.) . Probably runs in 500k ram but I have more. 4 hours battery life with a good battery. The 910 is a fantastic design so well worth keeping it going!

This might be a too late response, but I was searching for answer to the same question in the past few days, and after several trial-and-errors, I’ve finally settled down with CloudReady Home Edition (32 bit) for my Dell Mini 9 (Inspiron 910). It is essentially a Google Chrome/Chromium folk with minimum bloatware and runs sleekly on my 2GB RAM and 16 GB SSD.

Starting at the end of August 2019, the Home, Education, and Enterprise Editions of CloudReady will stop builds, releases, and updates for 32bit images. :'(

I have recently (April 2019) upgraded a hardly-used Mini 9 that just needed a charger. It had the original 16GB PATA SSD , 1GB DDR2 RAM, Windows XP. I upgraded to 2GB RAM with which it loaded and ran W10 Home Ver 1511, and then upgraded through to 1803. Then it ran out of disk space on the last upgrade but I was able to get it to load and run 1809 with the aid of a USB to 2.5” SATA adapter and a 256GB HDD system disk salvaged from an ASUS EEE-PC 1015PX (32 bit W10 V 1809). W10 works OK but is UNUSABLY slow. On the other hand, the Mini 9 runs Ubuntu Mate 16.04 LTS and 18.04 LTS just fine, though it can only handle video at about 240p before it turns into a slideshow. Look at Geekbench 4 Browser results for “Inspiron 910 Atom N270” - the Atom N270 in the Minis is the lowest scorer in my personal collection of devices that run W10. Hope that helps.

How's Wi-Fi? I've tried some distros that seem to not support the Wi-Fi card.

Go to distrowatch and look for architecture i386 for linux.

use a usb dvd drive, to install the os.

the dell mini 9 aka 910 is a 32 bit system with 64 gb max hard drive and 2 gb max ram.

I use linux mint 16 and ubuntu 14!

ooh get ubcd on cd for stubborn os`s that don`t want to be removed from the harddrive!

Be sure to try PuppyLinux (BionicPup32). It is a tiny distribution, that uses very little system resources itself, so you have lots of overhead for programs. Have had it run YouTube smooth at 480p right out of the box on much weaker hardware than what is in the Mini 9.
