Actually, ScummVM doesn't skip the code wheel bit as much as reveal it. The CD versions of the game, instead of removing the copy protection, simply had bits of code in to bypass that particular part of the beginning which ScummVM didn't recognize, so instead ScummVM found it (as well as the copy protection on MI2).

Oddly though, with the CD version, all you had to do was put in any random number and you'd be fine, but your saying it tells you it's wrong, which leads me to believe that you're using the original floppy version of the game, in which case I'd say it'd be a good idea to try and get a hold of the code wheel somehow.
