Switching drives to boot

  1. A while back I accidentally installed Windows 7 on my Dell Inspiron 1525 in the Recovery Drive. I then re-installed it in on the hard drive and had no problems. When I would turn my computer on it would give me an option of which version of Windows 7 to boot from, and if I didn't respond in 20sec it would automatically boot from the version on my hard drive.

    I recently had a problem that I had to fix with the start up repair on the installation dvd but now when I turn on my computer it automatically boots the version in my recovery drive. How can I fix this to boot from my hard drive instead? In the boot sequence menu I can't figure out how to specify which drive from the "Internal HDD" option.
