So I have an hackintosh dell mini 10v. I cloned the hard drive to a bigger 500gb hard drive and inserted it in but it during boot it said it couldn't find operating system.

Any ideas of why it didn't boot with the cloned hard drive?

Install a bootloader on it, most probably it didn't got cloned.

Thanks XLR .
I tried to put netbook installer on the hard drive but it didn't recognise any drive. Which bootloader should I install and where would I download it from?

Are you getting a boot0 error? If so it's a 4k sector drive, which yours very well may be if it's a brand new drive. There's a guide somewhere on how to fix that, I don't remember where I found it.
