how to make a bootable USB linux sine pinebook will not boot up

Could you  tell me how exactly the Switch on bottom works?  
Does switching it one way make it only boot to SD card and switch other way only boots to EMMC? 

what does the reset button do ?  and what sequence do you press it, with emmc out or when it's installed?

Kind of. The switch doesn't flip between "SD boot ONLY" and "eMMC boot only," instead it functions primary as an enable/disabling switch for the eMMC. So currently your eMMC switch is set to ON (the PBP will see and thus try to boot from the eMMC first, as SD and USB are still in the boot order, but lower priority than the eMMC) when you flip the switch the eMMC will be disabled and your PBP will look to SD and USB for booting. 

That's a good question! The wiki's documentation of the Reset switch in the PBP is sadly minimal, and doesn't really tell us much. Unfortunately, I don't feel comfortable saying that this is definitive, but given the context in which it's most often used (PBP battery drained and not starting after extended charge time) and the function of the Reset button on the PinePhone, I'd wager that the PBP's reset button is just doing a simple hard restart of the board.
