The Achievement description is a little confusing. What it means is you have win a Klondike game with out ever putting an ace on the blank spots for aces (the foundation pile). You will need to have all the cards from King down to Ace on the board so that the solve button appears. Once you click solve, you will win the match and earn the achievement.

Set your match up for draw one and standard scoring. Resist the urge to put an ace on the foundation pile and you should have it in no time.

Here are are a few helpful hints from other users Im the Lorax brings up a good point about not single clicking on the aces. This may cause them to automatically go to the foundation pile. Drag and drop the aces instead. This leads to AtlantisRhythm's comment about not being able to undo an ace out the foundation pile. Once an ace is there, the achievement can't be earned on that run. User Curtieson also suggests making sure to move all the cards that are displayed on the board before using the ones on the draw pile. This strategy is useful anytime you are playing the draw one variation.
