In this instance that was the problem, it didn't give me an opportunity
to choose 'X' in the first place.

I would beg to differ :) It is certainly not fundamental to server
operation, but when the first item you are allowed to select in tasksel
is "Desktop" I do consider some sort of Windowing System to be pretty
fundamental - since the desktop systems have to sit on some sort of
Windows Manager and the Windows Managers have to sit on Xfree or
something similar. Unless anyone here knows differently of course.
