So we start (when 75gb) is removed, but not normally.
I will give you a layout as best I can, then just ask for what you need.

Do I have to norton ghost it, ahhh that gives me an idea. the 200 isn't there yet as i have format it, but say its sdd1, could I
cp /dev/sda1 /dev/sdd1
To tell you the truth I don't understand too much of your post.
If you have two devices, a 75 & a 200GB (which you seem to have
partitioned to contain swap as well as a ext4 filesystem) all you
need to do is to mount the 187GB partition to a temporary spot (e.g.,
/mnt/tmp), and copy the files/directories from incommng to /mnt/tmp,
umount incoming, then change fstab to have incomming point at the
big partition, mount incoming, and voila. I'm not quite sure what your
reference to grub and booting had to do with any of the above.
