Achievement went into cloud instead of HDD

Hi, I'm new to this website and am hoping somebody will know the answer to this. After having a red ring of death I had to get another xbox and just decided to use my last xbox hard drive for this new one. It's been a year or two and I realized in the past month that some of the achievements were going to the new xbox "cloud" system. A week later I decided that the solution to this would be deleting the account tied to the new xbox. Unfortunately this did not work out. Is there some other way to enable my to earn those achievements? I'm not asking to automatically be given those select lost achievements. Thanks.

Well, achievements don't go into the cloud, just your saved game file. Once you unlock an achievement, so long as you are connected to Xbox Live, they will save to your profile and Microsoft's servers and you will not lose them.

If you unlock an achievement offline, then delete the profile or sign in on another Xbox, the achievements will be lost. I think this is your case? If so, the achievements are gone forever and you will need to redo them.
