Unhappy Installed Luxury vinyl flooring on partical board.

Good day,
Im not to sure what I can do now?? I glued luxury vinyl tiles on my MH particle board subfloor. Now im reading, that was not a good thing. What am I looking at and what can I do? This was my first time installing flooring. The floor was clean and prepped right. Everything looked good. I just did not know you cant just install any flooring on a subfloor. I knew what the difference between wood and cement were for flooring. Am I lokking at pulling all my vinyl up?!?!NNNOOOOOO!!

First off, I hope you know the difference between particle board and osb. Particle board looks like sawdust. Osb looks like small chips of wood all pressed together. Use Google images to see the difference.

I would do nothing, Either this will work or it won't and I would wait to know it won't for sure before taking any action.

It might work, it might not. Leave it be and see what happens.
