Well, in this case I would completely DEinstall FH and delete this folder manually:
\EA GAMES\Battlefield 1942\Mods\FH
I think, since you can boot vanilla BF, your FH installation has been corrupted. And reinstalling it your way could have left the FH folder with corrupted (custom) files in the FH directory.
When that happens, FH will install fine, but won't load due to the currupted files (could be anything ranging from sound files to map files)
