warning message

I used the command sfdisk -d /dev/sda | sfdisk /dev/sdb. It goes through fine except 1 warning. the warning is:

Warning: partition 1 does not end at a cylinder boundary

What does this mean? is it relevent? I can force the command if I wanted. The 2 hard disks are 1 Tb each.

Its a fresh install of PIAF.

Im under the impression in current times this shouldnt be an issue! is this a message that has never been removed from fdisk?

AFAIK, the concept of a "cylinder" is an anachronism. I've seen that helpful message many times, but there seems to be no ill effect.
