Fedora 24 on iMac won't boot

After a few issues (Live CD booting only as "windows" and not EFI; Live CD failing to boot 30% of the time for mysterious reasons), I finally managed to install Fedora 24 on my 2008 iMac next to Mac OS X.

The installation went on without errors. I had prepared free space on the internal hard drive and used the automatic creation of partitions from the Fedora Installer.

After the installation was complete, I don't see a "Fedora" option during boot when pressing "alt" key. I tried blessing the /boot partition but it didn't work either.

I remember a few years ago I had a Fedora (19 ? 20 ?) on the same machine and it worked fine.

What can I do to boot my Fedora system ? (I'd prefer to avoid Refint/refind)

My partitioning scheme : 0: GUID_partition_scheme *250.1 GB disk0 1: Bios Boot Partition 1.0 MB disk0s1 2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 229.0 GB disk0s2 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3 4: Linux Filesystem 1.1 GB disk0s4 5: Linux LVM 19.1 GB disk0s5
