Once again this post is very much due to the contribution of Mithan. God bless his soul for all the hard work he has put in to make this info available to us all.

The Burning Crusade is scheduled to ship without several Raid Instances. The Raids that are confirmed to ship with the expansion (to my knowledge) are Gruul's Lair, Magtheridon's Lair and Karazhan. The rest are scheduled to be added in via patch at a later date. All 5 Man instances will be working.


Blizzard's Interactive Map: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/burningcrusade/townhall/outlandmap.html


Azeroth
Caverns of Time (Tanaris)
You must complete "Escape from Durnholde" to proceed to "Opening the Dark Portal".

5 Man Instances:
The Escape from Durnholde (Level 66–68)
Opening the Dark Portal (Level 70)

25 Man Raids:
The Battle for Mount Hyjal (Level 70)

Karazhan (Deadwing Pass)
To open the gate, the Master Key is required. This is gotten by doing a quest chain starting on Archmage Alturus (outside Karazhan) and requires you to run a few instances back in Outlands.
10 Man Raids:
Karazhan (Level 70) Loot Link


Outlands
Hellfire Citadel (Hellfire Peninsula)
These are all located on Hellfire Citadel itself, with the exception of Magtheridon's Lair which is to the west side and bottom of the Citadel. Shattered Halls requires a Shattered Halls key, which is found on Keli'dan the Breaker (the final boss) of Blood Furnace.

5 Man Instances:

The Blood Furnace (Level 61-63, Heroic) Loot Link

The Arcatraz (Level 70, Heroic) Loot Link

25 Man Raids:

Gruul's Lair (Blade's Edge Mountains)
Multiple Bosses to kill in this raid so not a straight "Onyxia style" type raid but not a traditional raid either.

25 Man Raids:
Gruul's Lair (Level 70)

Black Temple (Shadowmoon Vale)
The lair of Illidan Stormrage and the main focus of the Burning Crusade expansion pack.

25 Man Raids:
Black Temple (Level 70)


Raid Instance Compilation
Most of these raids are traditional style raids but a few are basically like Onyxia, meaning you go in and kill a single boss. Some such as Gruul's Lair require killing a few bosses but are still done in the style of Onyxia.

10 Man:
Karazhan (Level 70)

25 Man:
Magtheridon's Lair (Onyxia Style) (Level 70)
Gruul's Lair (Onyxia Style - Multiple bosses) (Level 70)
