Fitting solid wood click system flooring onto a wooden subfloor

Hi, I'm looking at a type of solid wood floor to install which is click system.

For these types is it ok to do floating installation (with underlay) onto a wooden subfloor? I have seen some of these system advertised as ok for floating install. Other advantage is you don't have to clue the individual pieces together.

Traditionally you would either glue or nail solid wood onto wood sub floor, so if anyone has any experience with this would be appreciated.

This is a very goodd way to fit flooring and flouting floor would be fine

i would advise not to use a solid wood floated, a engineered floor would be ok.
a solid would need secret nailing even if it has a clic system as it will expand ,contract lift etc quite a bit as it takes on moisture from the air and subfloor.
