The version of grub boot files on the flash drive are configured only for booting the flash drive. It is a minimal grub.
You should be able to use Boot-Repair to install the UEFI version of grub correctly to your ESP - efi system partition.

First lets see your configuration.
Just run the summary report, the auto fix sometimes can create more issues.
Boot Repair -Also handles LVM, GPT, separate /boot and UEFI dual boot, only use ppa download into Ubuntu live installer.

If you do reinstall grub before someone reviews your install, only use the advanced mode and select your install.

Also HP has not been UEFI dual boot friendly.

HP ProBook 450 G1 Custom UEFI boot or copy to bootx64.efi, delay of a so called "Express Multiboot menu"
HP Probook 4545s Secure boot off, manually copy files.
HP Manually renamed files to make it work.
escape + F9 for boot menu, F10 for bios setup
