One thing i might want to add --

This side mission is available in Detroit, during the Anti-Aug Riots. Unlike some other side missions, this side mission is only available if you meet the following prerequisites:

--Spoke with Frank Pritchard before meeting David Sarif after your story mission at Highland Park/FEMA Camp.

--"Won" the dialogue with David Sarif. Essentially, you must meet and satisfy the Yes Boss condition. This dialogue event may be satisfied after you first meet with Pritchard in Jensen's office (see above).

--Read the emails on Adam Jensen's PC about his background investigation after convincing Sarif to come clean about the network backdoor. This is after the war of words with David Sarif (see above).

Only having met all these criteria, will the mission be triggered.

Copied from --

I was not aware of the prerequisites for this mission as for my first play-through i got this mission and didn't think twice about it, (like most side quests) and when i was ready to go back to Hengsha for the second time on my second play-through i realized that i never got the side quest to pop up, i realized i hadn't read the files on Jensen's computer and wasted my 'play-through' for that particular achievement ...

Make sure you DO THESE PREREQUISITES before you leave Detroit the first time, i don't believe there is another time you get the chance.

Also as several people have pointed out, this achievement does NOT screw up the pacifist achievement!

For actually SOLVING the quest itself, see the above or below solutions.
