SATA device number question

By highspeedsentry

  1. I am working on a dell PC that I'm trying to do a system recovery on. It has a 250 gig SATA drive installed. I unplugged the drive to connect to another PC to pull the personal data from and reconnected the drive to the dell to perform the recovery. On initial boot up there is a choice to press F10 to perform the recovery. Pressing this does nothing but send me to a boot menu. When I entered the bios it is showing the drive as device 4 instead of 1. Is there any way to reset the drive to device 1 again? I have a feeling if I can do this the recovery option will work.
