I have a customer who needs to have a server migrated from a disaster situation. The servers has ~1000 accounts on it.

The WHM transfer tool would be ideal, but isn't possible. There aren't any WHM created backups. The only access I have is through a recovery boot which allows me to grab all the files via FTP.

Do I have any other options than manually creating each account at this point?

You could write an API script to create accounts (if you know username, domain, password - or generate new) and a script to generate you rsync commands - if possible, using of rsync is preferable over ftp.. is the crashed server virtual? May be it would be possible to mount disk from the crashed server to the new and do rsync then? it would be a bit more complicated with the mysql database, but this task is also possible to do with API scripts. this sounds like a delicate task and I would encourage you not to rush and think of how you do it.
