GUID Partition Table (GPT) is a partitioning scheme that is part of the [[Unified Extensible Firmware Interface]] specification; it uses a [[Wikipedia:Globally unique identifier|globally unique identifier]] for qualifying devices. It is the next generation partitioning scheme designed to succeed the [[Master Boot Record]] partitioning scheme method.  It evolved to deal with [[Master Boot Record#Problems_with_MBR|several shortcomings]] of the MBR partitioning scheme method and offers additional advantages.
