Hi Tobias,

I suggest that you'd better to use the following parameters for restarting 

(1) For external restart section:
    RESTART_FILE_NAME *YOUR_restart_file.restart    * # specified the 
restart file
    RESTART_COUNTERS *TRUE*    # set the step counter followed your restart 
point. *If it is False or do not specified, the step number will start from 
    RESTART_POS *TRUE*   # specified the velocity file to read the velocity 
    RESTART_VEL *TRUE*    # specified the velocity file to read the 
velocity values

(2) For the DFT section:
     WFN_RESTART_FILE_NAME *YOUR_wavefunction_file.wfn  * # specified the 
wave function restart file. The program will read the wave function from 
your specified file.

(3) For the SCF section:
    SCF_GUESS *RESTART  *# set this keyword, then the program will read 
data from the restart file.

I also attached the input file added above improvements. I hope those 
suggestion will helpful. 

All the best,
