you can add -v up to three times to shh to increase verbosity and get a hint. Is the id_rsa used at all (sometimes an exact location must be given, in case that they are not at the default location)?

Normally the root account shouldn't be accessible.

Do you also use OpenSSH on the Windows machine? Sometimes the generated keys are in a slightly different format between the commerical and OpenSSH version.

You can also try to set up hostbased authentication, as using passphraseless SSH is not a safe way:
