OK thanks. Actually we now have learned to boot direct off the flash drive with most machines here and the local team are sure that they can easily advise the teachers on the remote islands to make the minor change BIOS settings. It works splendidly! This will really help in raising awareness and momentum for scaling up after the current small trial in Tuvalu. So, the boot helper issue was just a distraction.

Perhaps the helper CD is booting off an older kernel than the actual
SoaS image.

You can confirm this by opening the Terminal activity and typing

  uname -r

with and without the boot helper CD.
