    You need to understand that different manufacturers and/or models of 40 gig hard drives are not all the same exact size. One drive might be just 100 blocks (50k) smaller and it won't hold the image from your original 40 meg drive.

    You'll need to find a drive at least as large as the original to work.

    Do i have to format it or anything? I don't understand why it won't fit the image is 392,614Kb and in bios it tells me that my hard drive capacity is 400001 MB? So basically what should I do?

    Get a bigger drive. The image size has nothing to do with how much space will be allocated.
