I use my laptop in UEFI mode and my hard drive is in GPT. Currently dual booting Fedora 22 and Windows 7 without a problem.

Once I installed a different version of Fedora next to the current one and as a result I could only boot the newly installed version. I could not select between the versions at startup, there was only one fedora option in the UEFI boot selector or in GRUB.

How could two installations of fedora be booted in UEFI mode?

Just add a entry for your other Fedora in /etc/grub.d/40_custom then run grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/efi/efi/fedora/grub.cfg.

If your other Fedora is the version 23 beta and you're up for learning something new, check out the new systemd-boot feature in systemd version 220 that can be used instead of Grub. ONce you figure it out it's easier to use than Grub.
