There's a difference between a "VLAN" and "VLAN interface". A 2960 can only have one "VLAN interface" operational at a time.

For the method to show "NVRAM", the switch would have to be booted with that VLAN interface configured in startup-config when the switch was booted. If it shows "manual" that means it was created, but it wasn't in the startup-config the last time the switch was powered on.

Please post the configs of the switches and indicate which switch (and port) the PC is connected to.
