@Flarup did you set the USB's vid & pid? To update the cig file you can use osfmount or the xpenology tool which has other utilities too

You can create the USB stick with win32diskimager but in order to edit the cfg file you must mount it in osfmount.

I can't figure out how to use the off software should I just mount the synoboot.img in it ?

if yes I only can mount the full omg not choose any with 15 mb

the img file is about 50MB and osfmount should show 3 partitons (15MB. 30MB, 4MB)

as you already have writen a usb flash drive there is also the option to use linux to mount the 1st partiton of the drive to modify the grub.cfg (vid/pid)

 

you really should read

https://xpenology.com/forum/forum/36-tutorials-and-guides/

and

https://xpenology.com/forum/forum/83-faq-start-here/

 

also if you want a clean install you can remove all partitions from disks, that way then installer can only offer a fresh install, boot a live or recovery linux to do this, this can also be used to mount an mod the usb flqsh drive as mentioned above

If you had mentioned in your original post that you were using a Mac you could have saved yourself a lot of hassle.
