@JessBot Perhaps I can help, let me know if this is still a problem for you, I have a SFF 7050 which I run High Sierra on.

I need to have the USB plugged in in-order for me to boot it... Whats the fix for this? thanks!
Boot from your USB and when you get to the desktop download and run EFI Mounter and mount the EFI partition of your USB.
Copy the entire /EFI folder from the EFI partition of your USB to the desktop.
Eject the USB.
Run EFI Mounter again and mount the EFI partition of your HDD.
Delete the entire /EFI folder from the EFI partition of your HDD.
Copy the /EFI folder from your desktop to the EFI partition of your HDD.
Restart

You should now be able to boot from your HDD in the same way that you could previously boot from your USB.
