Start Marks on 220 Portra 160VC

Hello all.

On Kodak Portra 220 Medium Format rolls there are 2 film start mark indicators. The first is the dotted line indicating those are the start marks for "special equipment". Further along is the arrow for "regular" SLRs. I just shot my first roll of this film on my new Hasselblad and loaded my second. Upon loading the 2nd roll, I noticed that on the first roll, I actually loaded the film using the first start marks for "special equipment" instead of the 2nd indicator for regular SLRs.

What effect will this have on my shots? I'm assuming maybe the first few shots I took will not come out(?) Any effects on the other shots? Has anyone ever experienced this? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
