With MAME, .inp recording is controlled with two commands, -playback and -record.
To record a session of .inp for a game, you can use the following example:
mame pacman -record pacman.inp

To use that .inp in a reload of the game, you must use -playback:
mame pacman -playback pacman.inp

By default, INP files are placed in the folder which your mame.ini has defined as input_directory - which is INP. This folder must be present or else your .inp file may not save or load correctly.

For example I load a state (f7) for start stage 2 but inp will instantly fail.

Both mechanisms are incompatible with each other. You cannot create/load a save state and then record/playback an .inp based on that state.
