You can still login at this prompt with your 'root' account and

That's true it is a fairly generic question, however, the OP did state he'd tried to login with root and failed. Sounds to me like X wasn't the only thing that is having issues.

Although it could be the password he used. I noticed one time that the password I was using simply wouldn't work on the initial install of Fedora no matter how many times I installed it. It did work however after changing it once I got it installed.
