All partitions restore except the system partition. No errors are given in the dialog box. The last line of text is "Restoring system..." However, looking through the log, I find this at the bottom;

Whats the problem here? I flashed CM9 and it backed up and restored without a flaw. Why is it just the stock roms that are failing me?
So im still pretty new to this, but im pretty technical so I pick up on this stuff pretty quick. When I first started getting into this stuff I was using CWM as I saw it used most often around the forums. After getting root and unlocking I backed up my stock rom, and then tried to restore it just to test, and it failed. I tried a few times, with different settings, and it failed everytime, so I pretty much had no choice but to go to custom roms at this point. After switching to TWRP 2.6.3, and messing around with a few CM7.2 and CM9 roms, I decided to flash the 4.5.141 sbf (came from 4.5.145), which bricked me untill i flashed the pudding file again, then flashed a 4.5.145 update fruitcake, so i was back to where I was. Backed up the stock rom again with TWRP, wiped everything just in case that was the problem before, and it still failed when I attempted to restore. Again tried different settings, restoring from the SD card, from the internal, mounted and unmounted partitions. Nothing. I flashed CM9, backed up, and it restored flawlessly. Reflashed 4.5.141, pudding, and 4.5.145 update again, repeated the backup and restore. Fail.
