How much of the old stuff do I need to remove

I have removed some tile from my home and I would like to install wood floors this weekend. It took about 8 hours just to pop the tile and likely twice the work to remove the tile adhesive from the concrete subfloor.

My question is can I float or pour quick crete over the existing stuff to level out the floor and install the wood on top of it after it drys? Are there a variety of cons to doing it like that?

Self leveling compound applied following the package directions will bury the thinset---

Is it an engineered floating floor?
