Right click on Computer, go to manage, click on disk management, right click on the partition / drive that you cloned, choose extend, next, next, finish.

This will extend it to the full size.  (you might want to run a checkdisk /f as well to make sure everything is okiedokie.

Highlight MBR3, then click on Slide, and select 0 free space "after" it.   This will be pretty quick (there's not much data to move).

Then your free space will be immediately after the OS partition and you can expand it -- i.e. just highlight the OS partition, click on Resize, and select your new (much larger) size.
