You have several problems.
Windows 7 installation for an SSD is NOT the same as for an HDD.
For one thing your HDD has prefetch files,
which are omitted by an installation to an SSD,
but you got them on you SSD by restoring an HDD image.
There are many other things different about what files, folders, and Services are needed between an HDD and an SSD,
so what the Installation did for the HDD was WRONG for the SSD.
I learned years ago not to trust Acronis,
and perhaps your difficulties were compounded with an old version that might have lacked full knowledge of SSD peculiarities.
You have said
"even though the partition nos. on the SSD were full nos. (based on division of 4096)"
I am not sure what you meant.
I do know that the special requirement is NOT the size of the partition,
but the offset of the start of the partition, and there is a special DOS command that can help there
(I think it is DiskPart).
I believe running at 30% of the expected speed is a natural result of having the wrong offset.
