Did you install the GrUB4dOS bootloader to the PartitionBootRecord, or to the MasterBootRecord of the drive?

I am not sure how the Puppy installer works, but it looks like Puppy during Grub installation (on hard drive installation process) did not run os-prober to detect other operating systems.

I suggest to run Sparky Live, choose "run from the hard drive", then run Sparky.

If you login to Sparky hard drive installation, refresh package list (in Synaptic) and reinstall all packages with "grub" in the name.

Otherwise you can run SparkyLinux 3.2.1 Xfce Live and use "Boot repair" tool to fix it as well.
