I am attempting to Riprep a HP6930P. It always stops on SAFEBOOT.SYS with a
sharing violation. If you select retry it goes on, but it never actually
copies the file to the image. After restore, it boots to a missing or corrupt
SAFEBOOT.SYS. The file is actually missing. I have not been able to determine
the service or process which is locking this file. Have you?

The SAFEBOOT.SYS is part of the HP Security Suite. There are two ways to
solve your problem.
Deinstall the Drive Encrytion and Security Suite and re-image.
Insert a copy of SAFEBOOT.SYS in the RIS server image.
\\RISserver\d$\RemoteInstall\Setup\English\Images\ <imagefolder>\i386\Mirror1\UserData\WINDOWS\system 32\drivers

I've tested both methods with success.
