Fedora boot does not appear in BIOS anymore

Hi, I have a MSI laptop (GE62VR) and I've got two hard drives in it, a 256GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.

I had (and still have) Windows installed in the SSD but I wanted to install Fedora in the HDD so I did it with a Live USB. After the installation, I had in my BIOS the option between the Windows Boot Manager on the HDD and Fedora in the SSD. I had Fedora selected first since that lead me to the Grub where I could boot Windows or Fedora if I wished.

However, two days ago, I opened my laptop and for some reason instead of having Windows, my screen was showing a lot of different colors and not being responsive to whatever I did. I then forced the computer to shutdown pressing the ON button for a few seconds.

Here comes the issue: apparently, that made my BIOS reset, and now when I turn on the computer it automatically boots into Windows. I tried to change the boot order in the BIOS but Fedora does not appear anymore. I've looked for several ways to fix it but I haven't been able to do it.

I hope someone can help me.
