Should I check the ' prefetch data' box? Would it be a disaster?

It won't hurt anything if you check it, but I wouldn't bother.
Your computer will automatically replace anything that's needed. Prefetch amounts to what your computer thinks you're going to use next.

Here's what Microsoft says about it

So it may help speed startup, but isn't critical.
