What application did you use to clone the drive? And, did you first partition and format the external 500 GB drive before cloning? If you didn't, what you see is what you got.

Assuming you did not partition or format the 500 GB drive first, here's how to get things in order:

Make a backup first. Then...

Boot with your SL DVD and do not allow installation to begin. Open Disk Utility from the top menu Utilities. Highlight your drive (top entry) on the left. Choose the Partition tab. Now drag the partition line to encompass the entire drive. Click apply. Reboot. You'll now have all 500 GB available without any loss of data. Later on if you wish to install Windows, use the Boot Camp assistant. Should be OK.
