Unhappy vinyl flooring

I did another blooper as a "do it-yourselfer." I layed my own vinyl flooring. Thought I was doing a wonderful job at this project. I had the pattern from the old one that I cut from. Brought it in, layed it down, did as much trimming as possible. Started gluing it down and could only get the edges (probably about a foot inward) glued without trying to tear it. Might I tell you this was about midnight one night. The next morning when I got up, I see I have a warp place right down the middle of my flooring. I thought possibly this would work out-2 months later it hasn't. This expensive flooring is glued to a concrete floor. Any suggestions? I don't want to tear it up, but I'm not happy with the loose hump in the middle of it either.

Not as easy as they make it look on the home improvement shows on TV, is it?

Sorry to say, but total removal and starting over is the only fix.

When a professional installer does something like this. They end up eating vinyl for a month. Salt and pepper doesn't do too much to the taste.
