    PostModernMartrYep, I just suffered this exact same problem. Reloaded, didn't work, hard reset and reload and still no go.

    This solution is ONLY for those who join the minutemen and complete the quest, but the achievement does not unlock. Not sure it will work for everyone but this worked for me so I wanted to share it.

    Basically I finished "the first step mission" and did not get the achievement. All my answers to Preston were basically the "nicer" answers. Tried reloading with no luck. I was annoyed so I reloaded again and was basically a dick to him. I wish I remembered my exact answers but I told him maybe it would be better off without the minutemen and then something else and when it got to him saying yes or no, I said yes and immediately achievement pops. If you can save before you turn in to him you can try different dialogue options to findicate the right one. Hope this helps someone.

    tychologyNo matter how rude I am to the guy, the achievement still doesn't pop. Tried a range of combinations and nothing. Pretty annoying.

    tychologyEdit/Update to the above - I snapped my achievements in and out while playing and it randomly unlocked from completing the requirements earlier on... so definitely a strange and glitchy achievement this one.
