problem with second order backward Euler scheme

I want to solve my problem transiently which has already been solved in steady state.
I specify the steady state result as initial file and get the solution with "First order backward Euler". But with "Second order backward Euler" the solver crashes at the start. I change the time step but no success, help please...

Second order schemes are always less numerically stable than first order. Usually you can get around this with a small initial time step which you ramp up later. Alternately you can start with first order and switch to second order once things have settled down.
Usually it is only the initial transient which causes the convergence problems and as once you have got past the initial bit it works fine.
