Instant death has very little bearing on models with one wound anyway but:
-If a weapon would normally insta-kill a multiple wound models you do still need to roll and they still do get an armor save or inv. save(Unless the weapon itself would ignore their save).
You hit a space marine commander with a lascannon, you still need to roll to hit and wound. Provided you do he can take an armor save...but wait...lascannons have a high enough AP to ignore all armor saves, so the commander can take an inv. save if he has one. But if he fails it, or doesn't have one, then he's dead regardless of wounds remaining. This can be negated by certain wargear available to certain armies, but tahts usually one-off cases.
Oh and one little thing, please try to clean up your typing a bit, its very difficult to read.

Yupp, first you have to hit, to wound, get through the armour and then when the model would lose a wound, that's when you check the weapons strength (for instant killing purpouse). If it is twice the number that is not within "( )s" or more the model do not lose one but all it's wounds.
