don’t have executable permission on menu.lst?
i.e. chmod +x /boot/grub/menu.lst
You could also try sudo, but I didn’t have to do that.
/bin/cp * -f -r -a -p /destinationFolder
I’m not sure why your getting not fitting into memory, but oh well.
And the post on physdiskwrite, I saw that posted somewhere else on the net before it ended up in the forum (help docs) jumped all over it. It is a nice tool to have, but they also have dd for windows, which I couldn’t get to work
But that defeats the purpose anyways. Because it’s still a read-only OS essentially. All changes are lost on reboot.
