Yes the recovery files are stored on the hard drive for F11 so if it is bad you will not be able to do an F11 recovery. You are going to have to replace the hard drive.
Since you have Windows 10 you can download a recovery disk from Microsoft to reinstall on the new drive. Likely some data can be recovered off the old drive. Post back if you need more help.
