For M1 Mac please follow the below steps to go into the startup options:
- Turn off your Mac via the Apple logo and Shut Down.
- Press the on/off button and hold it down.
- Once the Apple logo appears, press and hold the on/off button again until you see Loading Startup Options.
Took me a couple of attempts before it loaded up.

You have to enable security boot options first :
Turn on your Mac, then press and hold Command (⌘)-R immediately after you see the Apple logo. Your Mac starts up from macOS Recovery.
When you're asked to select a user you know the password for, select the user, click Next, then enter their administrator password.
When you see the macOS utilities window, choose Utilities > Startup Security Utility from the menu bar.
When you're asked to authenticate, click Enter macOS Password, then choose an administrator account and enter its password.
Tick "No security" in Secure Boot option
Tick "Allow booting from external or removable media" options
Reboot while pressing the options key
Lemme know if ot works :)
