I have few images that i need to restore on different partitions on one HDD. The partition table is gpt

Not sure, you could test it. Partimage images blocks on a hdd, it does not copy data, so it might work OK. The partition table could be copied separately using dd just in case. The partitions themselves will not be gpt, they will be something else, ext3, ext4, NTFS, HFS+ etc. Partimage has not been in development for some time, so imaging current filesystems is considered "experimental"

You did not say how you got your images. Did you generate them with partimage? Did you get any messages? Be sure to check out the Partimage Manual (online). It may answer some of your questions.
