How did you restore SharePoint?  Or did you manually rebuild your web apps?

Does the AAM exist on your web app for that URL?  Does a binding exist on the IIS site for port 81?

You should probably disable Loopback as well.  

Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
In Registry Editor, locate and then click the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa
Right-click Lsa, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
Type DisableLoopbackCheck, and then press ENTER.
Right-click DisableLoopbackCheck, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.

Installing SharePoint isn't going to bring your sites back automatically.  Did you do any type of SQL restore, or SharePoint restore?

AAM is in Central Admin - Operations.  Bindings is in the IIS Manager on the server.

404 is an error of page was not there.

all the resource should be can be access also from the IIS, in my understanding, if the file is not there or cannot be accessed, the issue may appear; for this issue, usually you can capture the network trace for checking and normally this can be cause by the antivirus also.

Make sure you have certain folders excluded from antivirus scanning as mentioned by MS KB article.

If you haven't restored your sites, antivirus talk is irrelevant.

Central admin gets deployed when you run the config wizard. Your sites will only come back with a restore.
