Virtualbox Guest Additions Causing System State Backup to Fail on Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 with "the parameter is incorrect"

After spending hours trying to get a system state backup to work on a windows 2008 R2 SP1 DC, I finally discovered an invalid imagepath registry key for the VBoxService.
HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VBoxService\ImagePath value = system32\VBoxService.exe
This causes the backup to fail with "the parameter is incorrect" (very informative I know!)
I replaced with c:\windows\system32\VBoxService.exe and now it is working. This probably isn't the correct path to put, but it worked, so I'm happy. Maybe it should be \system32\VBoxService.exe ?
