Floor prep over previous engineered wood floor

DIY job - I'm in the process of removing an engineered wood install to put in slate. My problem is the old glue removal is very difficult. Ie the wood install was glued down to the slab when it was installed.. ( it is difficult to scrape off and does not come off easy with chemical removers ) I believe I need to get as much of the old glue off as possiable. Prior to installing the slate in either a thinset method or if possiable a mastic or glue down for the slate install similiar to the wood floor glue down? My questions are how to remove the old wood floor glue remaining ? and is it required for the new slate floor install? Or can I use a glue type mastic similiar to the wood floor install for the slate? I have @ 1000 square feet to do this for....

Hi and welcome. Please give us a first name.

I would make sure any loose glue is removed and leave the rest. I would then install Schluter Ditra over the entire floor before putting down the slate.
