1. Enable Root [ Disabled due to security purpose ]

sudo -i passwd root

2. Solus use lightDM. So lets enable root login there.

cd /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/
sudo nano 10_solus_default.conf

and add these line at end of the file

greeter-hide-users= true
greeter-show-manual-login=true

Happy Hacking !
