If everything You wrote is really a fact,
and You did everything like the instructions

Check Dell firmware-setup (F2) again.
Especially harddisk-related stuff (EFI-Boot, AHCI-Controller, NVMe etc.)
Maybe, USB-booting is forbidden by admin-settings.
Put USB into other machine, and try there, whether it works at all.

Set POST-Testing to "complete"/"long"/"full" test
When Booting from USB (F8 or F12 or similar), there
may be 2 USB-boot entries. Choose the right one.
