3.) What are the advantages / disadvantages when using AHCI on Win 8.1 / 8?

It is then quite annoying to work, here I recommend turning off, or switch from AHCI mode to IDE mode!
If multiple operating systems are installed on the same computer, this should also be changed to AHCI, otherwise you have to change the AHCI / IDE BIOS entry again! The operating system on which the AHCI was not enabled, so it can not start (boot)!
