Try sudo startx. Do you get a GUI? –  Mitch Jul 20 '13 at 18:53
Do you know if you had the server version or the desktop version when you burned a DVD or created the USB install stick? (The server version comes without a graphic interface by default, but it can be added). –  Azendale Jul 20 '13 at 20:24
