Are you still using the director from the command-line to do the installation? If so, then add an '-uninstallIU'. Your command line would look like:
-application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director \
-profile SDKProfile \
-uninstallIU "org.eclipse.platform.ide" \
-installIU "org.eclipse.sdk.ide" \
-repository file:/f:/temp/testp2/plat361p2 \
