Description of the change

Added two testcases specifically targeted at testing that images and installations successfully boot in both BIOS and UEFI modes, especially when offline.

There are similar testcases for subiquity (see https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-testcase/ubuntu-manual-tests/trunk/revision/370) but as they are written specifically for server, this was generalized based on the standard entire disk install.

The networking thing is no problem. Regarding the disk type, maybe I should just make it general?

Works for me - give people the choice.

If necessary in future we can easily enough create new testcases.

don't be too specific about installation type on BIOS/UEFI
