That's what the ISO file is creating for you.

Please read the steps in the tutorial, and the links in the steps, for details on how to.
Repair Install
You shouldn't lose any data, but I would strongly recommend to backup anything that you do not want to lose to be on the safe side. Anything can happen.

Please go ahead and post back with a screenshot of your Disk Management (diskmgmt.msc) window showing it's full layout to see if it may reveal what's up with the HDD.
