If you wanna learn D3D, better learn it the correct way. You could use some frameworks to simplify things, but I'd say you should better start with learning how to do all and then use some framework. The initialisation is the biggest part, that's true, but you can normally get it work within two hours as a beginner, look at the tutorials where all the initialisation is done without the framework, maybe copy some stuff and check out what happens if you modify it. While that, read through the documentation and you'll know how to do within one day.
