This says grub installed correctly, error code 0 is no error.

And this says Ubuntu is in UEFI NVRAM memory so it should be a boot choice. Can you choose it from UEFI menu or one time boot key. (probably not)
Installation finished. No error reported.
grub-install /dev/sda: exit code of grub-install /dev/sda:0

HP's have been consistent so far. Everyone has been modified to only boot Windows and work arounds required.

It seems hp firmware do not allow you to boot anything other than windows. Hence no ubuntu option in the UEFI. To work around it
1) press esc key while booting to access start up menu 2) press F9 for boot devices menu.
[SOLVED] Trying to install Ubuntu as dual boot on Windows 8.1 desktop HP500
HP Envy 17 zero brightness, use f3 to change
acpi=off worked for HP2000
HP Envy M6
HP Envy - Legacy boot seems to mean either UEFI or Legacy depending on which is found to boot from
Installing Ubuntu on HP Envy-6 Details of what worked post #11
HP 4545s Secure boot off, manually copy files.
HP Manually renamed files to make it work.

Most find this works.

Rename /efi/boot/bootx64.efi, copy shim or grub from /efi/ubuntu into /efi/boot and name it bootx64.efi Then boot harddrive entry in UEFI menu.
