Creating a map service from a map cache, is it possible?

Greetings all,

I have been sent a map cache, complete, from the arcgisserver directory, and also the original mxd (10.0) used to create the service.

My question is, can I use the cache and mxd to recreate the map service, without having the underlying data? If yes, how would I go about doing this in 10.1?

Many thanks in advance.
