This command.com no have Strange Instructions Built Into COMMAND.COM as noted in
the article by Micho Durdevich RIPLing Windows Millennium Edition From OS/2 Warp Server 
Appendix A: Enabling Real-Mode DOS Support in Windows Millennium Edition "Our main idea is to replace the file VMM32.VXD by the appropriate command interpreter. The simplest solution would be to use the standard COMMAND.COM. However, a slight technical problem appears here, because of a funny mistake in the standard command interpreter COMMAND.COM"
Appendix B: Weird Changes in Design of Windows Millennium
If you copy any normal DOS executable over VMM32.VXD, it should start without problems, as a part of WinME "boot". The only ME-runnable program I know that does not start properly is the command interpreter COMMAND.COM


IO.SYS outdated.

The MS-DOS startup disk only allows the system to boot into an MS-DOS prompt. The disk contains no additional tools.
An MS-DOS startup disk is useful when you need to update a computer’s BIOS.
