3) Use Minitool Partition Wizard to copy the Win7 partitions (including the 100MB 'system' partition) to the 250GB SSD
4) physically remove the 128GB ssd and replace with the 250GB ssd
5) boot up from teh 250GB ssd
6) Use Minitool Partition Wizard to expand the 128GB partition to fill the entire 250GB SDD
This is exactly what I did a few weeks ago, it works most excellently, for me anyways, , , plus the 128 g is your backup in storage.

I've already did what Squirrel fist suggest, copying the partitions to the new disk.
Instead of copying partition one by one, AOMEI has a copy disk.
The two are slow as they are copping partitions in use.
Clonezilla is an Linux graphic app that you boot from a pendrive and clone one disk to the other. It resizes the partition. It's fast. I recommend it.
