What -xtoverid- is doing internally is reestimating the original model, but using -ivreg2- on the transformed data.  The error message says that this internal reestimation doesn't match the original.

The -noi- option lets you see the results of this internal reestimation.  Unfortunately, the variable names are all temporary variables rather than the originals, but maybe you can work out which is which.  In any case, the thing to do is to compare the results of the internal reestimation with your original estimation.  My guess is that you have some collinear excluded instruments, and -xtoverid-/-ivreg2- is dropping some of them.  With a little luck, the internal reestimation by -ivreg2- will have some informative messages along those or similar lines.
