Install LOOT and run it once from Windows Explorer or a command prompt so it can update the masterlist. If you're using the very latest version of LOOT, I think you'll need to use Mod Organizer 2.1.4. If you're using Mod Organizer 2.1.3 and click the Sort button, you may run into a conflict with the masterlist -- Mod Organizer wants the old one and LOOT wants the new one. I don't know if this will cause the problem you are experiencing, though.
This may seem like a silly question, but are you sure you are running the same LOOT both times? The only reason I ask is because I helped another user with a similar issue and it turned out he was running newly installed LOOT right after installation that worked correctly, but then clicking a shortcut that ran an older version of LOOT in another folder that hung on a white screen.
Definitely do not install LOOT in the Mod Organizer folder and do not install anything into the game folder unless absolutely necessary. SKSE, ENBoost, and ENB presets must be installed into the game folder but everything else should be in its own folder.. say C:\Tools\ModOrganizer, C:\Tools\LOOT, C:\Tools\WryeBash, etc. This isn't really all that important with Mod Organizer 1.3,x, but Mod Organizer 2.x does not work correctly if it's installed in the game folder.Go to the full post
