Can you post a 'dir nvram:' and 'show run' ?

The size of your running config may be bigger than the 32KB nvram

It seems you running-config file is bigger the default 32KB of NVRAM memory.

You should be able to solve it using the next global config command:

"boot buffersize " i.e "boot buffesize 64000 " (Note the switch needs to be reloaded).

Hope this helps.
