There is no problem of partitions formatting. Symbos is launched, I can use the GUI, but if I want to access to other tools like control panel, I was returned file not found. 
The whole directory is copied on my local partition as Symbos expected. 
The impdos partition is amsdos compatible, except to access to the directory, we use the ùcdx RSX. 
I also tried on a FAT32 USB key. I wonder if I must customize le symbos.ini file. 
Sorry I'll check the documentation.  :picard2:

What happens, if you do
Start -> Run -> Browse
Will you find any drives and directories?
If not, the device isn't configured correctly.
If yes, only the icon links are wrong. Depending on if the extended desktop is active or not, they can be reconfigured in the control panel or directly with a right-click.

when I use the browse button, symbos returns me "error while reading directory: a disc error occurred during the directory loading (error code 2)"
I think Symbos does not like impdos format. I will try it on a fat volume.

Prodatron

Impdos format is not FAT(16)?

Can you connect it somehow to a PC and try to read?
This may help to find out where to search the problem.

I will try on USB key formatted in FAT16 for instance.

Thanks Xeno for posting this, but I decided to remove it again because of the music (currently not a good idea, it was just a mistake due to the playlist). I will post a new one until this weekend!

@Prodatron Whats the chance that symbos could support the spectrum next? Partially off topic but... if there are more users that is also  good thing for cpc users.

Prodatron

The Spectrum Next would be the next port for sure... As soon as there is time!
Caesar sent me a prototype board years ago for the SymbOS port but unfortunately I was lazy at this time, but I think today it's a better situation because of the improved emulators.

Does the latest Symbos work on the TRex?

Prodatron

I don't see a reason, why it shouldn't. It is SYMBiFACE II compatible.
TBH it's maybe 15 years ago since I had the TREX in use.
You still need the special TREX-"Risc"-SymbOS for booting the machine and selecting the ROMs.
