As is normal links to the images we need testing.

In addition to the general 32 and 64 bit install tests, upgrade tests 
are important as well - especially *real* upgrades. I can smoketest a 
clean install and upgrade - not anywhere close to one done in the real 


One last point - and an important one, if you get affected by the "vivid 
fails to shutdown or reboot at end of installation when "reboot now" 
button is pressed" bug please mark test as *_failed with critical bug_*.

I would be surprised if you don't get affected by that.

Thanks all
