Shared boot is in general bad idea.

What is not clear - did you install second system successfully? Could
you boot it?

What you could do - mount root from main system manually and re-run
grub configuration again. This should add second system to menu.

Note that it does not update grub configuration which probably still
points to the second system. You need additionally run grub-mkconfig
(or some distribution specific tool that does it) to rebuild
configuration so it points to new root.
