I used texlive 2008 as my tex installation, which already provides some portability. I follow the same basic approach as tl-portable.bat, but add the necessary environment variables for LyX, convert and ghostscript. Apart from one problem between the bundled convert and the bundled ghoscript, this works really well.
The standard installer already bundles Ghostscript and ImageMagick in a portable way (no registry keys need to be modified).
