Try this vbs script:

wscript.echo "UUID:        " & getcomputerUUID
WScript.Echo "netbootGUID: " & getComputerNetBootGuid


Function GetComputerUUID
      Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\.\root\cimv2")
      Set colSystems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_ComputerSystemProduct")
      For Each objSytem In colSystems
              getcomputerUUID = objSytem.uuid
      Next
End Function

Function GetComputerNetBootGUID
      Set objPC = GetObject("LDAP://cn=somePC,cn=computers,dc=domain,dc=com")  'you need to change this line to match your PC's distinguished name in AD.
      strObjectGUID = objPC.objectguid
      GetComputerNetBootGUID = ConvertObjectGuidToString(strObjectGUID)
End Function

Function ConvertObjectGuidToString(ByVal arrRawObjectGUID)
      Dim i, strByte
      Dim arrObjectGUID(15)
      For i = 1 To LenB(arrRawObjectGUID)
            strByte = Hex(AscB(MidB(arrRawObjectGUID, i, 1)))
            If Len(strByte) = 1 Then strByte = "0" & strByte
            arrObjectGUID(i - 1) = strByte
      Next
      ConvertObjectGuidToString = Join(arrObjectGUID, "")
End Function
