not sure what you mean by "into", but i'm pretty sure you cannot boot "from" a usb stick.
you CAN boot from an operating system image "burned" to a microSD.

atm you cannot boot a usb stick directly.  You may boot an SD card with a valid Arm image for the A64/Pinebook.  For instance, I have xenial-mate on my eMMC ( internal ) and I utilize xenial-i3 from my SD cards.  The SD card slot (if active) has boot priority.  

You may boot 'from' eMMC or SD card and then 'run' the /rootfs from a usb stick,  or SSD; HDD;  what-have-you;  however,  the usb stick may not yet be used to boot-up, and of course live boot sticks for x86 will not work-- this is Arm for crying out loud.
