vgaetera, I tried the efibootmgr but it had no effect.
When I first started this post, I had BIOS Insyde F.68
I went to HPs website and downloaded the appropriate BIOS update, and now I have Insyde F.newNumber
This removed the 2nd entry of the hard drive that is illustrated by the screenshot I posted before.
HOWEVER, all of this is to prevent the surveillance of my online activity, and I am afraid that even with a recently flashed BIOS, this has not stopped.
So I will mark this post as SOLVED, because I was able to have the second entry of the hard drive removed from my booting devices, and I will open a new post.
