I'd be using parted btw to create such a script, not gparted (graphical). For batch files, command-line parted would be better.

Who told you it needs to be gpt instead of mbr?

Are you sure you don't just need to run
$ blkid
to find out the UUIDs for something?

Thanks, this is a golden way for two live HDD or raids but in my case this method simply does not work because there is no HDD to copy from the Gpt partition layout

>> there is no HDD to copy from the Gpt partition layout
Then you could create one 'sample' machine and create the initial layout for copying.

You are about to run this on a bunch of machines, right?

I tried to backup the partition table and restore using the following:
To backup I used:
# parted -ms /dev/sda print > sda.parted
Restore:
#sgdisk -R=/dev/sdb  sda.parted

But I get warnings/errors : file size is not multiple of 512 bytes! Misbehavior is likely!
Error 25; strange behavior

Also there is another option like sgdisk -l -w.  

Any help appreciated.
