I don't think this is possible. If you only create a root password in
anaconda, this is noticed at first boot, and g-i-s runs in its pre-GDM
mode and forces you to create a user account before you reach GDM.
There's an unfortunate conflict between wanting a disabled root user
by default; and the ensuing difficulty troubleshooting boot problems
because systemd demands only root can login when hitting emergency
target. An account in wheel is not an option.
