Ylmf OS is a Chinese Linux distribution based on Ubuntu.

1) Create a back-up of the Ylmf OS partition to CD or other external media.
2) Reinstall Ylmf OS onto the partition it was previously.
3) Restore the data files from the backup.

Alternately, you may be able to update your GRUB boot-loader settings to point to the correct partition, but I don't have any experience with Ylmf OS, so I don't know what loader it uses or how to configure it.

I agree with the post by rossj81

Most of the Ylmf Linux systems are based on Ubuntu, some were based on Fedora.

The problem we have is that the user forums are available, as far as I can see in Chinese based languages, so no help can be obtained from there unless you can read Chinese languages.

If you can that may be the way forward.

Normally as posted by rossj81, if it were Ubuntu you would simply boot from the installation disc, select repair, go to the terminal prompt and repair Grub. which is the boot loader for Ubuntu

Of course as I see the situation, care is required with the dual boot situation and if you can acess the data stored on the Linux partition, it may be easier to ensure that is secure and then reinstall the Ylmf from the installation disc to the partition.

When you boot from the Ylmf disc is there on there the same as there would be on Ubuntu - the repair function to access the terminal prompt

OR you may find this useful

but I cannot vouch for its use on that version of Linux you have which is of course the Ubuntu etc OS with the desktop changed to resemble Windows.

It is now some 20 days since you asked for help, I wondered if you made any progress.
