The position doesn't really matter. Some old bios needed the boot sector
inside the LBA (first 1024 cylinders) - but the partition number doesn't
equate to the sectors/cylinders you're assigning to them. So you may
want to look at the actual addresses for each partition.

It should work. My guess is that you may have forgotten to set "force
primary" on the boot partition. Again, grub doesn't care if it's a
primary partition but they usually are created first if that matters to you.
