Windows Server 2008 R2 Backup Features in R1?

The built-in backup functionality for Windows Server 2008 improved significantly from R1 to R2 in that R2 now includes system state and bare metal backup.  (I realize that it was somehow possible to do system state with R1 via the command line but I'm not sure if it was possible to actually restore).

My question is as follows:  Is there some way to get the R2 backup functionality in R1?  Is there an add-on or a tweak that can be done to do it?

Thanks

Thanks, bigstyler.  You've confirmed my concerns about R1 builtin backup.

I left the question open for a while hoping that someone may have found some kind of work-around but it looks like I'm out of luck.
