Just take out the SD card from the Pi and flash it with your PC/laptop (assuming you have a card reader). I am using the latest raspbian image and flash it directly on the card so I don't have to use NOOBs after to actually install the OS.
For my rover, I am using the lite raspbian version because I don't need the GUI or any of the extras. Boots up faster and generally is cleaner.
Best of luck and let me know if you need help.
Finally got some time and burned a new Raspbian image from the latest install source. After several tries I got the old 16gb chip out and the new SansDisck 64gb installed without having to dissect little Rovey. Did some surgery on my little Rovey back end to plug in a wired Ethernet cable. Hooked up keyboard, mouse and monitor. Fired little Rovey up and it is back to life. Yeah. Changed the Config.txt file to enable I2C and SPI. Put in a fixed IP address and got the internet to work. (typing this post on it right now) Downloaded the democode and clicked on Volts.py. It brings up Thonny 2.1.16 running Python 3.5.3 (32 bit). Press Run Script and then Bomb. Print is now a function and requires (). No problem. Fixed those. now it gives me
Traceback (most recent call last):

Now I need a little help. Not sure how to fix this..
