Description

In order to fix expectation about the partitions that YaST logic will install we can wipe the disk beforehand,
for example with dasdfmt -b 4096 -p /dev/dasda. UI seems to only allow to format partition, but we can check also there.
Notice the differences:

https://openqa.suse.de/tests/5925939#step/partitioning_filesystem/12
https://openqa.suse.de/tests/5899407#step/partitioning_filesystem/12

  1. In order to wipe the disk before the installation, we may use FORMAT_DASD: pre_install;
  2. We also have to make sure that there is test scenario with formatting using UI (during installation). In case there is no such test suite, please raise a ticket to implement the one.
