1 Answer 1

The reason is that you have 2 HDDs, each with a GRUB installed to their MBRs, but you can only boot one GRUB (at a time), namely the one on the first hard drive with the Ubuntu installed on it (sda). The solution is to update Ubuntu's /boot/grub/grub.cfg so it will detect and include Fedora as well:

sudo update-grub
