Depending on what he means by "restore".

If he just needs access to guest files, there will be no problems.

Also, Proxmox VE will theoretically work without proper CPU support 
(albeit slow, so definitely not recommended). I once started a server 
with CPU virtualization disabled in BIOS, and KVM guests started. If 
it's just temporary, and the guests are mostly idle, it should work.

Another possibility is to convert the guests to OpenVZ (if they are 
Linux guests).
