Added external array now it wants to boot off it

We have a Proliant 2500 with a Smart-2DH controller with 4 18.2GB drives. It's been working great. We recently added an external storage enclosure (4100) with 7 9GB drives. I used the ACU in Windows to configure the array and added a logical drive. Now when we reboot the server it's trying to boot off the external array! How can I change it to boot off the internal array? I already placed some data on the new array so I don't want to just dump it. Is there a setting somewhere to change this?

Re: Added external array now it wants to boot off it

Well I went ahead and removed the external array and used the ACU to delete the logical drive. Now it boots up. I did notice that the internal drive cage now says it's logical drive 3 instead of 1. If I add the array back and create a new logical drive it calls it logical drive 1. How can I force it to make the internal cage logical drive 1 so it boots off it?
