You are selecting boot from USB as first boot device and save and exit?

Is the UEFI recognizing the drive? Is all USB support enabled in UEFI?

Then I do not understand what is going on since it looks like you are doing everything right.

If you press enter on the drive in the BOOT override section of UEFI does it BOOT the drive then or not? If not, I think something wrong with the installer on the USB stick or some strange compatibility issue.
