Hello dear community, I have come to discuss this problem that is giving me headaches to try to solve it. The problem is the following, I currently have a partition called EFI System Partition of which, is the one that is preventing me from being able to boot to my other system, called Perppermint 9, because it only recognizes Fedora. I have to clarify that in the installation of fedora, I was asked to make a partition called BIOS boot partition, because it detected that my hard drive has a GPT partition table, which I accessed but it did not work when I wanted to boot from the bios, since it did not detect the Fedora partition and the Peppermint partition, so I had to use the EFI System Parition partition again, to try to solve it, this time if it worked, but now it does not detect the other partition with the other system, so right now I am from fedora because it does not recognize, that is the other partition. Sorry, I asked this question a long time ago, but I want you to know everything that happened to me, so that you can understand, from many thanks for your patience reading this.

Run find /boot/efi and show the results.

Also show the output of efibootmgr -v

Hi, that's how I had to delete that partition and the bios boot partition, and again create another efi partition. I think I made a mistake in doing that, now that I think about it. Is there any way I can add the data of my partition, so that it recognizes it?

It looks like you have selected to reformat the UEFI file system, and thereby erasing the boot loader for the other OS. As I am not familiar with Peppermint 9 linux, I have no guidelines for recovering, but it would most likely involve booting the install media for the Peppermint OS.
