<CTRL><ALT><F7> will reach the X11 session. If it started. If not, it could be
that a default xdm session (KDE, Gnome, XFCE, etc.) wasn't selected or a
desktop 'task' wasn't installed.
Console #7 is the standard console used for X11. Console #1 is the default
console when there is no default X11 session.
If Roberto gets only a black screen with nothing on it, he may have a problem
with his video driver.
