Sounds like you erased some important files. I don't know what files, since there are many.
This is what I would do:
1- Using a gamesave manager, backup all your gamesaves to your PC.
2- Using Slayers Auto installer, rebuild your HDD to stock form.
3- Re-install your aplications, homebrew, dashboards, etc. Having a prior backup would help a lot with this specific step.
4- Using the gamesave manager again, copy your gamesaves back into your box.
Also, once you're done rebuilding to stock, make sure Live works, just create any profile so you can gonnect to HALO 2, wich is the one with the problem, and download whatever you have to download. Run account recovery if necessary. And make sure the maps will load just fine.
Good luck mate.
