Grub not showing up at all

I have Unbuntu 19.10 on one HD, and I installed Bodhi 5.1 on my other HD.

After installing, nothing shows up, I just have a blank screen, I can only access through the live CD.

use that to chroot one and install grub.

ADJUST according to your needs.

if I thinking right Bodhi shows up Ubuntutu the first time booting, it just might be getting confused too. in your live boot mount /boot/efi and look in there to see what has been placed in there, Bodhi might be using a Ubunut dir too. so that would cause the confusion when trying to boot one of them.

when you reinstall grub / efi

mount /dev/sda2 /mnt/
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi
mount -t proc none /mnt/proc
mount -o bind /dev /mnt/dev
mount -t sysfs sys /mnt/sys
chroot /mnt/ /bin/bash

grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=Bodhi --recheck --debug
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
change the Bodhi to Ubunitutu if you mount that to chroot it . again just adjust according to your needs.

You need to post some actual useful information on your situation as otherwise, any response will be no more than guesswork. Best way to do that is to use either the Bodhi or Ubuntu live usb and go to the boot repair site below, use the 2nd option explained on the page to get boot repair then run it as instructed using the Create BootInfo Summary option. You will get a link when it finishes and you can post that here.

From what you have posted, all we know is you have 2 drives but we don't know what type of drives (msdos,GPT), how many partitions, UEFI or Legacy, how you installed Ubuntu (UEFI or Legacy) and how you installed Bodh (UEFI or Legacy). These any many more questions will be answered by the boot repair output.
