    i have also tried this on 3 different computers, xp, windows 7 and Mountian Lion

    also DFU and Recovery mode do not help the situation it still says in iTunes error

    Ipad 2 stuck at boot screen and will not restore in iTunes

    Have a look at this tutorial from my fellow moderator f4780y: TUTORIAL - Failsafe method to restore the current version of IOS

    If the steps are followed exactly, you should end up with a stock iPad running iOS 6.0.1.

    Good luck and let us know how you get on.

    Do you have tiny umbrella installed? If you do, make sure that the boxes to restore with itunes are checked or unchecked.
