The boot cd is in case of a major catastrophe where the machine will not boot up because of a bad infection, OS crash etc but the hard drive is still good. You put the cd in, reboot the machine to the cd, go through the restore steps where you have to browse to the image you created on that thumb drive so the thumb drive would need to be in a usb slot so the program can see it.

You can actually restore the machine from Macrium without the cd if you so choose. Open Macrium, click on Restore, it will take you through the steps where you choose the backup you have created on that thumb drive to then restore the machine.
