    I have System Menu 3.5 and Preloader .29

    I'm guessing I have to install a System Menu via Homebrew Channel, right?

    Will I lose all my data if I reinstall a System Menu? If so, which SM is recommended so I can reinstall HBC?

    Thanks in advance.

    Nope - you wont lose any game saves or cios etc - what you will lose is preloader. What you need to do is:
    Boot Preloader
    Boot HBC from Preloader
    Boot Hacks Remover (should have from when you installed Preloader)
    Remove all your hacks using Hacks Remover
    Boot Wad Manager
    Install SystemMenu-vXXX.wad (XXX for your region whatever you have and I advise googling for the WAD)
    Restart your Wii and you 'should' have got rid of your semi brick and preloader
    Reinstall Preloader and you should be good to go
