In linux/Unix a simple text cut and paste would be enough. Not everybody

You have "hardware issue" here. OS is not going to recognize memory unless 
the BIOS finds it through selftest and report to the OS loaders and the 
OS. Make sure you see all the memory during computer self test before you 
can proceed. Are you sure you have the right memory? There are so many 
versions out there you have to be careful what you get.
