You must install the Digilent drivers while installing the Xilinx software.

You have to put the jumper on the upper row of pins of JP1, above PMODA, from the left two pins (SD) to the right (JTAG position).
Plug the board via a normal USB cable directly to a USB port of your development computer.

Start the board.
It will ignore the SD card, and be available directly from Vivado and Vitis.

I tested this with 2020.1 and 2020.2.
