This video of a Lenovo Flex 10 says to insert the usb, turn it on, then press and hold the Fn key and keep tapping F12 until you get a one-time boot menu.

Thank you Bree, here disabling secure boot in bios won't bring legacy option. Pendrive getting hot but not detected in bios. when i press f12 i am getting empty boot manager. And say no bootables found, hit any key.
