unable to boot from usb pendrive - problem with bios in lapbook 15.6

I recently purchased chuwi lapbook 15.6, ever since I am trying to instaall Ubuntu or puppy or some kind of linux on it. The lapbook doesn't come with a cd / dvd drive so the only option for me is to install a linux via a usb pen drive, I tried to put the linux .iso into my usb pendrive using unetbootin software to make my usb pendrive linux bootable. I later tried to change the boot priorities in bios and tried to boot from the usb pendrive but it's just not booting, the usb pendrive doesn't seem to be showing up in the boot priorities menu in the bios. please help in suggesting a solution

The format of the pen must be Fat32 or NTFS so that it can be recognized.

The pen drive was formatted as FAT32. Even then the problem exists

The problem is not about Ubuntu or any other Linux.
The problem is that the lapbook is not booting any Operating System from USB Pendrive. I tried making my pendrive a windows 10 bootable also but it didn't boot windows 10.

my question is simple
currently my chuwi lapbok is running windows 10 with with it came, i want to install a linux on it by erasing windows completelyp
i made a puppy and fatdog linux bootable pendrive using unetbootin / rufus, after making it, now when i try to boot up with my pendrive, it's not booting linux from the pendrive, it's only booting up to windows 10 (which is in the harddisaptio sk), i tried setting boot priorities and diabled fast boot option in my aptio setup uility (bios), even then it didn't help, i can see uefi: sandisk Partition 1 (which is my usb pendrive) in the boot priority option, but it's just not booting linux in the pendrive, so i am unable to install linux on my lapbook

I tried F7 option and chose my usb pendrive, it did not solve the problem. No matter what i chose (pendrive or not), it's only booting windows 10 from hard disk. there is no problem with my pendrive, i tried testing my bootable pendrive on other laptops it's working perfectly fine (meaning booting linux os from pendrive on other laptops). only on this chewi lapbook 15.6 my bootable pendrive is just not working, what is the solution?

I am using 8 gb cruzer blade from sandisk, I tried 4gb cruzer blade from sandisk also.
