This achievement is pretty self-explanatory. Start the game, and play through the opening cutscene. You will not be able to load your save from Dragon Age: Origins until after you have passed the first battle. Once you pass this battle, you will be given the option to modify your appearance, change your portrait, and either select a preset group of events from the first storyline, or load your own save.

Just for fun, here are the three groups of events:
The Hero of Ferelden: Human noble, good guy. Took Morrigan's way out, Alistair is king.

The Martyr: Dalish Elf, female, described as cynical but out for the greater good. Alistair & Anora rule, hero dies.

No Compromise: Dwarven noble, described as ruthless. Alistair exiled, Loghain kills the Archdemon, Anora rules.

Import your own save. When you select this option you are allowed to choose a save of one game from any of the DLC, or your main game playthrough. Make sure you choose correctly if you want Awakening & Witch Hunt (if you played them) to show up.

NOTE: It is possible to get the achievement without a completed save from DA:O. You only need to complete an origin story.

Lushion Rudd says: "The patch came out today, and it did fix the epic achievement. I loaded up my last checkpoint that begins the battle with Orsino, that then moves onto the final battle with Meredith. Upon beating Meredith and skipping the cut scenes I got the achievement. Loading the post game check point did not work."

So just load up your checkpoint just before the final battle, and you should get it.

Thanks to CowsMakeNoise, we have some concrete answers. At this time it is POSSIBLE, but unlikely to get the achievement. Each playthrough after your first has a 21.4% chance of getting you the achievement. More & official word from bioware found here: http://social.bioware.com/forum/1/topic/302/index/6597490/3#...
