Are you sure you want to remove the hardwood floor? Is it really bad?

Here's a previous thread that should help you.

I'm sure we want to remove it. It was not a good product and we are replacing the carpet in the rest of the house with shaw laminate that is a different color. After I removed a few boards it's not solid hardwood but plywood with a top veneer layer.

Razor scraper to get the adhesive off the substrate.

I bought a 4 inch scraper and put boiling water on it.Most of it came off. Thanks for the help! The tile is in and it looks great. Your how to articles helped alot.
I did however undercut the doorjambs too much, going to have to fill in the gap with something- the gap is wider than caulk will fix.
