You cab extend the partition in disk management. But....

you should do a clean install of windows. You shouldn't image a HDD to an SSD

Where are you getting the capacity information?

If BIOS shows 80GB, then your drive has been truncated by a HPA. Otherwise, if Disk Management shows the remaining space as "unallocated", then add a second partition and format it.

If it is your OS image, I thinks your SSD is boot-able, you could right click My computer-->manage-->storage-->disk management, and then right click this partition to extend it, Or you could use AOMEI Partition Assistant home edition, which is free and easy to use.
