you mean you want to restore an image you already have? if you purchased the bundle with the included imaging app, just follow lthe directions. if you didn't receive the software, you can use an app that was recommended by targetbsp, called macrium:
it's important that your imaging app properly aligns the image/new partition on the ssd
you can also do a fresh install like you would on any hdd. after you have imaged over/installed to the ssd, go to control panel/system, and run the WEI. this will let windows know you have an ssd, so windows knows not to auto defrag that particular volume.

So I installed windows 7 correcly and restored my fresh imge of windows with acronis true image.
Everything went well and it seems to work properly.
The only thing is that I'm not getting the performance i was expecting,I Did whatever there is to do to improve the performance of the ssd but still nothing,I think it's because my asus G73jwa1 doesn't support sata 3,what do you think about it?

images are moderated, so it may be a bit before we can see it. can you open as-ssd, and see what your alignment is?
you can also try what targetbsp linked to in this post:

looks like caching needs to be active on that volume. sometimes windows doesn't have caching active (even though the cache 'box' is checked). to make sure, you would go to computer, right click on C, properties, hardware, your ssd, policies, and uncheck the cache box, then reboot. once back in windows, go back and recheck the box, and test again.

i also notice you are using the native MS driver. you may get better caching using the latest intel rst ahci driver. also, you might want to set windows power options to 'performance', making sure that the ssd is set to never power down,and that the pci-e setting of lpm is set to off. there are also some bios settings you can change, like disabling c states, but let's get the latest intel rst ahci driver installed first.
