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

and

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.
