Question about Dell Latitude D600 Notebook
I recently worked on a D610 to replace the hard drive with a new 320Gb WD and learned that the BIOS does not support drives larger than 137GB. However, Windows has no problem with it. If you create primary boot partition larger than 137 GB, Windows will not boot. So, the solution is to create a primary C: partition no larger than 137Gb and create a second logical partition (D:) with the remaining space.

By virtue of the fact that the system boots to the 320 indicates the system can handle the drive, as it is pretty much an either or proposition. Either it works or it doesn't
More likely is that there is some data corruption that occurred during the data transfer. I know for a fact, that the virtual memory swap file can have issues after being cloned. So you may want to delete it by disabling Virtual Memory, rebooting and re-enabling it and rebooting again.
The BIOS flash recommended by MalKontent68 is a great idea too as it always is helpful with new hardware to have the most current BIOS.

D600 is a rather old laptop. It may need a BIOS update - go to DELL support website and look for a BIOS update for your model (quickest search by providing the Service Tag number).
