I have managed to push 2G Transcend SSD drive into my falcon, it works however I am unable to do any other partition setup but full one 2G partition. I have tried several drivers but my atari does not like it. Any idea why? HDX dos not want to format it and hangs during partitioning, HDDUtils will format it but only some versions so I had to use one version to partition it and another to format it.

Is it even possible to "format" in IDE drive with HDX? Usually this is (or atleast *was*) done by special tools provided by the harddisk manufacturer. What you need is to do a sector test. I don't think "formatting" IDE does anything at all.

But it should be good to read/write till a few TB.
I do not know if Mint impose these limitation.

Nothing that I would know of. Radeons are working, other cards are not
