    You should just need to install the SP04 update, then the SP04 Patch 02 update. Uninstalling SP03 is not necessary.

    But if you really want to, there are instructions for doing a full clean uninstall here: https://launchpad.support.sap.com/#/notes/1691555

    It doesn't directly apply to your scenario, but there's a lot of good info here on the pitfalls of upgrading to BI4.2 SP04: https://blogs.sap.com/2017/05/12/a-simple-guide-to-updating-upgrading-your-sap-businessobjects-bi-platform-the-rules/

    You can download the 4.2 SP3 patch2 from the upgrade option in SAP portal, instead of full build. Run the installer on top of 4.2 sp3
