I have 80's laminate wood in the kitchen that has been glued to 70's vinyl floor then that vinyl floor is glued to the subfloor. I want to get rid of the glued laminate wood to put down more laminate wood that matches my dining room. How do I go about doing this or where do I begin?

I once helped a friend hand chisel it out piece by piece. He first made a few cuts across the laminate planks to cut them into smaller pieces. (He adjusted the depth of the circular saw blade to the thickness of the flooring, which was 8.3millimetres.) Then he tried a flooring scraper with little effectiveness. Then we broke out the cold chisels and tapped away at the flooring and it came off in a big mess. After cleaning away the larger pieces. We used wider chisels to tap and scrape away the glue. This worked excellent but took a long time!
