    Thanks for this info although seems bad news
    So, no mSATA SSD will works on T91MT?

    I found this info https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PCI_Express#Mini-SATA_(mSATA)_variant
    Maybe exist any compatible mSATA, How could I be sure if my mPCIe slot is valid for both IDE(PATA) and SATA?

    Just Google your netbook model ;)

    To save you some time, T91 uses 50mm mPCIe form factor mini SATA SSD (same as the one in Eee PC 901), T91MT uses 50mm mPCIe form factor PATA SSD (same as the one in Dell Inspiron Mini 9/910), this compatibility chart should provide lots of useful info regarding this matter. Also, don't mix up the mini SATA SSD with mSATA SSD, they're totally different.

    All in all, there are three types of SSD with similar form factor but are incompatible with each other:
    • mPCIe form factor PATA SSD
    • mPCIe form factor SATA SSD
    • mSATA SSD
    With the info above, you'll realize mSATA SSD will not work on your T91MT.

    A very useful information, and here https://forums.tweaktown.com/runcore/38236-t91mt-runcore-ssd.html they also confirm what you told me, although the first versions of T91MT had a SATA interface (I dont know if they refer to mPCIe form factor SATA SSD or mSATA SSD)

    Anyway my T91MT is PATA.

    Thanks!
