 G'day Zed,
You are our eyes for this.  We can't know what you see if you don't write it, in picky complete detail.  Please don't ignore any of the questions assuming we would know your answer - we don't.

Have you written a linux iso to a thumbdrive before and successfully booted it in a machine?  If so, did you use the same process you are using this time?
"Complete close down and restart" might mean two things.  One would be a 'restart' without powering off ("Linux" closes down, but not the machine).  The other would be a complete power off operation, then using the power button to restart the machine.  Which do you mean, please?
As the machine restarts, do you press any keys?  Which ones, when, and what do you see before and after you do?

That's five questions, and if you give us the answers to all of them, then we can help you without wasting time on misunderstandings.  Thanks in advance.

Using Linux Mint v20.0 on a Lenovo Thinkpad T450s

My T450s does not have a DVD/CD drive, so I wrote an ISO for Gecko Linux to
bootable USB thumb drive.  The write was successful.

However, when I cam to choose which media to boot from on reboot (and on a
complete close down and restart), the  USB thumb drive was not shown.

Cannot find anything in BIOS which requires changing.
