No problem whatsoever. While it can be important that partitions start
on properly aligned boundaries (which, BTW, have absolutely nothing to do with the fictitious CHS geometry), where those partitions end
is of no consequence whatsoever. Furthermore, when partitions are made with the recommended sector units and 1-Megabyte alignment, it is pretty much inevitable that they will neither begin nor end on the "cylinder" boundaries that fdisk
likes to complain about.
