You don't say whether you installed X. If you did, and the
lined black screen is GUI, then Ctrl+Alt+F2 to a terminal and see what
happens. If you get a login prompt, log in as root and fix the problem.
Or perhaps uninstall X, and then reinstall it so you can start it with
startx, and use a different window manager or desktop environment.
