    I upgraded to El Cap from Yosemite.

    I now need to restore back to Yosemite.

    I'm trying this by booting into the recovery partition and restoring from a time machine back up.

    I've already done this a few weeks ago and it worked perfectly.

    It isn't working this time. When I reboot after restoring, the progress bar gets stuck.

    Tried booting in safe mode to no avail.

    Tried resetting pram but no good.

    Any ideas? I can boot off of another disk and my restored boot disk looks fine: all files seem to be there in their correct places.

    Really stuck with this. any help appeciated. Thanks.
