Summary0000892: Rocky Linux 8.7 Generic Cloud only bootable with UEFI

Having pulled apart the image a bit, it looks completely different to the 8.6 one.
I _think_ the problem is that there just isn't a grub.conf for the non-UEFI case?

(I should have been clearer, the image does in fact boot, but drops straight to a grub prompt).

No, that exhibits the same behaviour, drops straight to a grub prompt

I apologize for not updating this case. The image has been updated and should now work for UEFI and BIOS boot.
