unable to see last cylinder in fdisk /dev/sda

Hi all

i have a 300 GB hard disk in dl 380 G6 server

i am doing fdisk /dev/sda

i can see all partitions. while creating new partitions using 'n'

i can only see first cylinder prompt and it is coming out new partition creating mode and then if w saved it it is saving first cylinder start and end with same number

yes i can use parted but in fdisk why there is no last cylinder prompt
