I cant post support as i am testing the install on localhost.

It seems like like a permission problem.

Topic and Posts appears on widgets, but when i click it, it says 

Sorry, there is a problem

Problem solved.

phpbb converter sets parent_id = 0 for forums with no parents,

I changed parent_id = -1 and everything worked!

UPDATE `forums_forums` SET parent_id='-1' WHERE parent_id='0';

After update, all the forums appears in admin panel, I had to manually set member group permissions.
