are you trying to restore to the original machine?

If it's a different box this could be a firmware issue!

Please update your firmware then.

it is on original machine only.  still i am unable to progress on the same

do you get any reference code? Check with your HMC (if LPAR) or consult the LED display (if standalone).

It's rather uncommon that an mksysb restoration would hang without any message.

Hopefuly we will get some more info, otherwise this issue is going to become rather difficult to solve.
