I am compiling to an SSD connected through SATA using IDE emulation on Windows 7.
Unfortunately, I forgot to enable AHCI when I installed, and though there are ways of performing surgery on Windows to get it to use AHCI after the fact, they do not apply to my specific situation. I would need to wipe and reinstall the OS which is a pain.
Do any of the advantages of AHCI apply to compilation such that they could improve the compile and link time performance of my C++ applications? I am not doing much else in the background (I've disabled indexing of the SSD).
