As I said, something must create configuration file that has reference
to these operating systems. Often this is done by running external
program os-prober that returns list of other operating systems; then
grub-mkconfig is using this list to build menu entries.
So the first question would be - what are you using to configure GRUB
(do you create grub.cfg manually? Do you use grub-mkconfig? Or some

You can always create necessary configuration file manually. How to boot
other operating systems depends on how they are booted. Do you use EFI
or legacy BIOS boot?
