I had similar issue on some of the machines. Try with the bios boot from
device (some F key).
Because you have installed Windows after Debian it could be it has
overwritten the EFI partition or the boot order. 
Once I had to delete the EFI partition and reinstall which solved it, but in
your case it might be that the EFI now loads the windows first which might
be set in the BIOS or in the EFI.
I don't have dual boot, but when I boot from USB stick I have to F9 (HP
EliteBook) once so that the bios find the usb and then again F9 which shows
the debian boot option.
