Hard drive being detected as USB ?

My laptop recently started giving me issues and I had to reinstall Windows after wiping the drive. However, for some reason the updates for windows do not want to install due to it reading the hard drive as a USB drive instead of a hard drive. I had a similar issue with a different machine about a year ago and managed to find a fix for it without having to wipe and reinstall (if i remember correctly, you had to change a line of code or value somewhere on the PC), but I cannot remember this method anymore. Can someone please assist
