Doing a clean install of Win 11 on unsupported PC

l'm planning to try a clean install of Win 11 using the ISO file with a bootable USB on an unsupported Win 10 PC but l'm not sure how I get Windows to validate afterwards.

My Win 10 is a legit copy and I have an MS account. I was hoping to do an in-place upgrade to Win 11 using MS' instructions. The PC meets all the requirements except the for the CPU but even with MS' suggested Registry edits to bypass the CPU check, it fails every time. Has anyone done this successfully and validated Windows afterwards?
