Note on Board Rev:

You should ensure that the Board Rev listed on the board (see [link] to answer How can I determine what Board Revision I am using?). On the 2.0 version of the ZC706 board the rev number is here:

You'll notice that we only have Version 1.4 available. From [link] you can download the UCF and XDC files:

In this archive it says in the readme.txt:

"No XDC or UCF changes from Revision 1.0 through Revision 2.0."

So the fact that it only lists 1.4 is not a problem since the XDC and UCF files are what change when you update the version.

Here are some pictures of the rest of the columns:
