Did you happen to check your gatherer logs (http://<SPServer>/_layouts/1033/ListIndexes.aspx). Has a crawl already taken place, If so were there any errors?

Of course. All you need to do is restore:

1. virtual server files on the file system
2. IIS metabase
3. the portal using spsbackup.exe

Did you have good backups of your farm, your metabase and your virtual server

1. Ensure your search  service is running
2. Check the gatherer logs to see what errors you're encountering
3. Check your default content access account to ensure it has read permissions to the content source
