Ok I installed the package they sent with the LCD screen which is:
3.5 inch Raspian Jessie.img

How can I install Retropie on top of this ?

I finally installed Raspian and RetroPie
Everything working fine on the HDMI monitor

I then installed the LCD screen software :
cd /boot
sudo tar zxvf LCD-show-160701.tar.gz
cd LCD-show/
sudo ./LCD35-show


Still displaying on the HDMI monitor and very difficult to read
The LCD is white with no display
Do I need to edit the config file ?
It's a 480x320 LCD touchscreen display
