Now you know, new prefinished floors are not meant to be demolished. Check with the manufacturer about how to fix it. Hope you didn't void your warranty.
I found this YouTube video made by Bona. It references a Bona polish remover. Everything else was 1 cup vinegar to a gallon of warm water which sounds like you already tried.
I have been using the following to mop my hardwood (pre-finished as well as what we finished) since 2000 with great results:
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp blue Dawn
2 gallon hot water
Wring mop as much as possible before applying mop to floor.
If I want it to "shine", I use furniture polish. My kids love it because they can put on sock and slip & slide in the house for a couple of days.
