Restart on different machines: Reducing nspin is not possible

Good evening,

I just wanted to restart a cp2k calculation on a Power7 machine using the 
*wfn file from a calculation which I performed on a cluster with Intel Xeon 
X5670 cpus. Now, the calculation aborts with the following message:

 ***                     STARTING GEOMETRY OPTIMIZATION                     
 ***                                   BFGS

Of course, the input file is the same on both machines. A co-worker 
mentioned that it might be that the wfn file cannot be read since it is a 
binary file and, therefore, the format could be read differently on 
different architectures. 

How can I use a *wfn on all architectures? Is there a way to convert it, 

Thank you very much!
