AXI Quad SPI, STARTUP or not STARTUP

I want to use the AXI Quad SPI block to access the configuration SPI (in quad mode). 

I initially enabled the STARTUP primitive inside it but only connected the pins for the SPI_0 port.

It doesn't work so I'm wondering:

 

- Should I disable the STARTUP primitive? According to the below, it is possible to access the SPI flash without it

- Do I have to place the clock pin as well? The clk pin is not in the SPI_0 port but in the STARTUP_IO, what I've done is to map the four i/o pins and SS to the config flash expecting the clock pin to be there
