So for me I can see it as three types of partition table - msdos, gpt
and no. I do not see why is better to have

if gpt?
elsif msdos?
# no partition table case

If no partition is a valid use case (and it is as mentioned above) then it does
not make sense to raise exception in that case. Exceptions should be used only
in error cases to handle *unexpected* things...

then simple

if gpt?
elsif msdos?
elsif no?

+1, this looks better to me...
