It depends, can be a combination of things like:

-Didi you checked the bios settings, is the SECUREBOOT disabled, allowing other OS to boot?
-Did you tried other usb sticks, other usb hub ports?
-Did you enabled IOMMU in the bios?
-Did you formatted the usb stick with Rufus, with the right GPT/MBR partitioning?
-Did you tried the CSM, legacy boot options combinations in the bios?

Nice job for following the Tail bootable usb guide.

You can either try what was advised in this thread.
Stop the boot with tab and remove the lines, as also shown in the picture you posted above.

You can also try to disable the secure boot in the bios.
Check this guide, the option reside in the Boot bios tab.

While you are in the bios, check around in the tabs, if you can find the IOMMU option.
If it is there and it is disabled, you can try to enable it.
