I don't think it would be even remotely surprising to find that unsupported Macs are unsupported, in general. Once you start "patching" things to get OS versions that specifically exclude a given Mac to work, you're kind of in what-do-you-expect territory. :-)

Note that erase-then-copy is not a "workaround" for bootable backups. It's what's required, by Apple, for this.

You can, of course, make a Smart Update, which will only copy the Data volume (everything but the OS) and can still be restored fine.
