I did some testing with ME's fdisk and here are the results:

End-Cyl (real)  End-Cyl in partition table 
1071            46
1275            250
2550            501
3825            752
4982            885

all values are decimal, I used Linux fdisk to get the real end cyl.
Looks like ME's fdisk writes the real cylinder number modulo 1024 minus
1 into the partition table. 

Hope this helps getting parted work on these ME machines, we need it.

All these tests were done with primary partitions, do you think we need
to test logical volumes too?
