Installing bamboo / hardwood over osb
 
Is it advisable to put 3/4" wood or bamboo flooring over 3/4" OSB? Can the OSB hold the nails? thanks

If it was mine I would have added at least 3/8 (1/2" would be better) underlaymant.
Making sure not to have the seams line up wiith the seams below and never attach to the floor joist, do not use glue.
Attach every 4" on the edges and 6 to 8" in the field.
It has more to do with stiffing up the floor then nail holding.
