Cloned Drive Missing Kext Files

I needed a bigger hard drive for my iMac G5 so I cloned the existing internal drive onto a new Seagate 500GB. Thinking I had a perfect clone I then replaced the internal drive with the new Seagate drive. It boots up okay but several messages are displayed that some system extension .kext files are missing. Included in these are IOUSB.kext, unsupported.kext, and several others. Now my external drives are not recognized and won't mount. I think I'm going to put the original drive back in for now. Question is why didn't the .kext files get installed on the new drive?
