I had a new hard drive installed on my macbook. It shows up on the desktop and when I click on the Macintosh HD icon it shows that I have 300 +gb available. However, when I click on the finder and "about this mac" the old hard drive is the on that is displayed. How do I get the finder to recognize my new hard drive?

I had a new hard drive installed. When I click on the hd icon on the desktop it shows me that I now have 300 gb or so. But when I click on the finder and about this Mac I can only see the old hard drive. So when I tried to download lion I got a message that I don't have enough space. Is this some thing I can fix or should I just take it back to the place where I had it installed?
