Ceramic tile flooring

We recently had an addition put on our house and our kitchen was expanded. The new area of the kitchen has sound plywood flooring. However, the old section is hardwood flooring which was in terrible shape. We decided to ceramic tile the whole kitchen. Here is the problem. My husband began laying the ceramic tile in the new section with no problem. When he reached the old section of the kitchen he thought he would be able to tile over the hardwood with no problems. Well, now we have cracking grout and tiles that are lifting up. Is there any solution to this problem without riping up the entire floor and starting from scratch?

no,rip it up and get back on here before proceeding any further.

There is no way that this type of subfloor will accept a ceramic tile floor.

Ditto what Floorman said, you don't want no carpet in a kitchen! Trust me, I've lived thru that before!!

You got to have a proper substrate for the tile install to bond properly, but from the sounds of it, you maybe able to salvage most of the tile you've already laid, if the effort warrants the expense of the tile.
