What software did you use for the cloning?
Ghost is the preferred method.
Be sure to choose a disk to disk clone, not a partition clone.
It sounds like you may have created a 20G partition and left 40G unallocated.
Partition Magic may also take care of the problem, if you have access to a copy.

I've just installed the same type of hard drive in my PC running win XP and have no problems.. do u know that you need to format the disk before it will show up with the other accessible drives?
what to do is - click start, right click on my computer and go to manage.. then double click on storage, disk management local.. and it should show up here, once you format it your all set..
No need for drivers, windows has them already, it's all generic one's the windows is familiar with..
Hope this helps!

Configuring the BIOS
After completing the drive installation, restart your computer. Your computer
may automatically detect your new drive. If your computer does not
automatically detect your new drive, follow the steps below.
1. Restart your computer. While the computer restarts, run the system
setup program (sometimes called BIOS or CMOS setup). This is usually
done by pressing a special key, such as DELETE, ESC, or F1 during
the startup process.
2. Within the system setup program, instruct the system to auto detect
your new drive.
3. Save the settings and exit the setup program.
When your computer restarts, it should recognize your new drive.
