1) MacOS Boot:MacOS Boot:

I recently installed Fedora 22 on my MacMini Late 2014 and also lost the means of booting MacOSX.

I had previously installed Refind boot manager which I used to choose which OS (MacOSX or Fedora 20) to boot.

The good news (probably will also work for you) is that you can simply boot while pressing the ALT key and choose which EFI to boot on the original hfsplus MacOS partition (in my case I chose the refind boot).

Pressing the ALT key while booting detaches a simple embedded EFI boot manager every recent Mac has (and when booting with ALT key pressed, it will load even before grub). Then, after booting with MacOSX, I reblessed the refind bootmanager and everything got back to work as before.

2Additional note: I use refind to load elilo, which then loads Linux. Please, be aware that after reblessing MacOSX (if you don't use refind) Makingyou will "lose" the right buttoncapability of booting the new installed Fedora 22 (unless you boot with the ALT key again and gestureschose it). I recomend installing a more user friendly EFI boot manager as refind to work:not need to boot using the ALT key to chose which OS to use.

Making the right button and gestures to work:

I my MacBook Air mid 2011 I currently use Fedora 20 which works fine (will upgrade to 22 soon too), but I remember that some time ago, when I used to use Fedora 18 on it, I had to do some tuning for the synaptics driver to work with all the gestures. I don't have the old config files to paste here anymore (/etc/X11/xorg.d.conf/50-synaptics.conf), but maybe these links can help you (I still have them in my bookmarks):

Good luck and please post back your results here.
