Sorry for the delay in reply.
When doing "sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=d:\windows" it starts the system scan and says it will take some time, but then right away says "Windows Resource Protection could not preform the requested operation."
Get some rest! I appreciate the help, no rush though.
Yes you're right, it was system reserve and not system recovery. Both were NTFS and healthy.
I ran bcdedit | find /i "OSDEVICE" and it was D:, so i ran the chkdisk.

Safe mode gives me the same black screen error.
I went to command prompt and ran diskpart. What exactly am I looking for here? My drive shows up as D. There is a "System Restore" which is on C: but im unsure what drive it is actually on. Ive never had a System Restore partition before
When I try to boot my computer I was faced with this error:

Click on View in the Menu Bar.
Then select Show Sidebar.
On the sidebar on the left side it should list your device.
Once clicking on it you should see the Music Tab at the top.
From there you should be able to choose your playlists/albums/artists.
Select your device in iTunes.
Under the Music tab it should say "Selected playlists, artist, albums, and genres"
Then Select the few albums and whatever else you want.
Click Sync at the bottom right.
After the sync you should be left with only the things you selected on your iPod.
