This will allow two different recovery methods...use the recovery but leave my data intact method first.

Just to amplify, many big box PCs have a hidden partition that includes all the software needed to restore your PC. More modern ones give you the option of an inplace repair or a complete system wipe with fresh install. You should always try the first choice, and hopefully you can at least get your data.
