  Perhaps I'm missing something, but it seems that there's
only one vector that satisfies these two conditions simultaneously,
which is x={0,1} ... ???  (Actually, technically speaking
you could have as many zeros as you wanted -- x = {0,0,0,1}
would also work -- but I don't think that's going to help much.)
If min(x)=0 and max(x)=1, then x must contain 0 and 1.  If x
contains any other non-zero values, and no negative
ones, then sum(x)>1 ...

   You seem to have a problem either in your definitions,
or in your communication of those definitions to us ...
