I understand you are getting a f12 key with a red light on it. Resetting your computer forces the system to clear and reestablish the software connections. If you follow this document it will help resolve your issue. Start with a Hard reset.
Let me know how this goes.

Thank you for your inquiry. I will do my best to assist you!
When posting it is most helpful if you include the exact model of computer and the operating system you are running.
I understand that you are getting a Boot Manager missing error on startup.
