This forum is more for running Mac OS on no. Apple hardware.

Best way to get a bootable usb drive is to do it from another machine running Mac OS if you can get access to one.

Can be done on windows but I’ve never tried it.

Have you tried holding the alt key when it boots with the usb drive in the Mac.

 

Is the keyboard wired?
