Your only option is to play again on the account you want the achievements on.. They are not transferable. Play the game again using the account you want them on is the only option you have. Sorry but there is no other answer

why people recover their tags on someone else's console is beyond me  you're just asking for problems  keep it simple and play on the console that your tag is affiliated with

People recover their gamertags so they can play elsewhere using their own profile. It was one of the reasons Microsoft introduced cloud storage. People can now access their profile, games saves, and achievements from friends' and relatives' consoles.

Why not utilize cloud storage? You might have avoided this issue.

probably because most people don't know what the *** cloud storage is  you want to show off in front of your friends invite them to your place and play on your own console  you open the door to numerous problems playing on others consoles

This explains cloud storage, and how to use it: Xbox Cloud Storage.

It isn't about showing off. People should be free to play with friends and family, without having to lug their own Xbox.

If I've read this correctly, you were playing offline on your Friend's console, correct?  If so, then there is nothing you can do, I'm afraid.

With the latest Dashboard update, Roaming Profiles and Cloud Storage are officially supported however this is only useful if you are playing online (connected to Xbox LIVE).  If you'll be playing offline, you'll need to move your current profile to a USB drive along with your game save and then move them back when you're done.

I would also delete your older profile off of your Friend's console.  If he connect to Xbox LIVE with it, it might overwrite any other Achievements in any other game that you've earned.
