    In Mission 1 "Dawn", once you gain control of Master Chief, walk out into the next room and instead of going straight on, look to the left of the walkway to see a flight of stairs. Go down these stairs and turn right to the control panel underneath a spotlight containing the Chief's records. Simply hold cn_X on the panel and the 20g is all yours.

    Here's a quick video on where exactly the records are held.

    Tip for those having trouble getting this achievement.
    There's like 8 solutions already so read them to find where it's located...
    BUT to those who the achievement will not pop for...

    If it does not pop when you first hold X on the terminal, simple restart the mission from the start menu, walk past the set of stairs that leads to the "Records Terminal", hold X on the terminal that reads "Review Weapon System." Now turn around and go to the "Records Terminal" and try it.

    This worked for me and I can only hope that it will work for everyone else.

    If you add this to your guide please give credit.
    I hope this helps.
