First of all, HOW did you load Win10 onto an SD card?  Asking, because I don't recall the Microsoft Tool allowing you to designate an SD card to use to create Win10 install media. If you simply downloaded the ISO file and copied that file to the SD card, that will NOT work.


Second, pressing F9 while you reboot will give you a list of boot options.  If your SD card is inserted at the time and it is not shown, then you will NOT be able to boot from it -- and that is usually the case with SD cards.


You would do better creating Win10 install media on a USB stick -- as nearly all recent PCs can boot from that.
