Literally it's destroyed in the same way as the first generator, you lean against it, and your suit does the rest. If your real question is how do you get out of the room once you've done that, because you're now surrounded by Flood, here's two ways:

I too found it very hard to survive all that Flood, but then I figured out that I could jump into one of the holes that they come out of, and at my leisure pick them off. The jump into the hole is tricky, partly because the game's frame rate drops a lot while the generator is blowing up.

The other way, which may be the official solution, is to get grenades and the rocket launcher, and as soon as you've blown up the generator head towards the door, and rocket launch at the many Flood coming in at the time. Once you've killed enough of them you can jump past the remainder to get outside, without worrying too much about any behind you.

One other thought about the room, you may be having a hard time when you first get into the room. Instead of trying to kill the Flood right away, let them fight it out with the Sentinels, and make sure to kill anyone left, so that you get a save checkpoint before you blow up the generator.

Just for the record, there is another way to get the second gen on Halo pc which will probably work on xbox just the same. I did this for Legendary where this is one of the places you can die fifty times before getting lucky. Its not fool proof but the odds are better. You really need full health, full grenade load, pistol, shotgun.
1. Empty the room, mostly from the entrance door cover. Lob a couple of frags when the flood are dancing around the gate to the gen. Clean up flood with shotgun/pistol from left of gen door and/or cover opposite gen door. Watch out for missile launchers, there are two flood equipped that way.
2.Swap pistol for a plasma rifle. Do that near to the entrance if you can, or drop/pick up walk the pistol to cover of the entrance door so it's easy to pick it up when you finish.
3. Hop through past the gen, turn left after the rear door to the gen, hop over the infectious, and turn back and use the plasma rifle in bursts to wipe out every single infectious. ( Just one of them left can kill you when you loose your shield at the gen.)
4. Go walkabout to get shotgun shells, the two rocket launchers and any grenades. You need at least one plasma grenade and a couple of frags, but take time to stock up as no hurry here.
5.Now prepare. Go to the back exit from the gen room facing out. Re load rocket Launcher so two shells ready. Switch to plasma grenades and shotgun.
6. Position yourself for the gen and subsequent run. You are at the back of the gen room about 6 feet in, facing out through the gate. Your left shoulder is against the stanchion on the left. Your shotgun is pointing at the frame of the gate to yur right. Your back is to the gen. Why? Because all hell is about to break loose, and you need help to get out. This does it. You walk backwards and hit the gen sliding down the stanchion on your left. That ensures that yu hit the gen without needing to look. You face out, so no need to turn and run, just back up, kill the gen and run forward straight out the gate. Drop a plasma grenade on the floor at the gate and run out the gate past it. Turn left and head along the far wall. The grenade will take out any flood spawned near where you were. Switch to frags and rocket launcher as you run. Count the cover pillars/bumps, one two(?) (Check that beforehand). Get ready to fire rocket as you slow down at the second(?) cover bump. Past the bump, aim and fire, there will likely be a combat form and more behing with rocket launchers. The first shot will take them out. Allow a fraction of a second to aim and fire the second shot to the floor in front of the exit door. That will get more as they pour in. Now, with an eye on the radar, switch quickly to shotgun and frags. Turn and run the other way, all round the outer circle. Clear the way with the shot gun, don't stop. If a flood is in the way and doesn't go down then jump over. The radar will show a bunch behind you and a smaller bunch ahead as you near the exit. Throw one, two, three frag ahead as you approach the exit if you have time. Keep shooting. On a good run you will get through and can use the exit to mop up. On a very good run there will be very few left and you have the luxury of hunting down the last fewin relative peace. The trick is in decoying the big bunch to cut the workload down that is why it works. The standard way needs luck and very fast reactions.

Done, have a good day. Don't forget the pistol and restock once you have cleared. Can usually walk out close to fully stocked except for grenades.
