Only ever enter the Orange portal, after you've obtained control of both of them.

I attempted this achievement (successfully) many times and had it fail to unlock. The game is very picky as to what constitutes not entering the blue portal. Here are the tips I used to unlock the achievement on my actual successful playthrough:

1). It is OK to start from the chapter where you obtain the fully powered device. Playing from the start is not required.
2). Don't take too long going through portals.
3). Never ever stop in the middle of a portal. Never hang in portals.
4). Always jump + crouch through the portals to ensure you pass through them quickly. If you mess up, reload your last save/autosave. THIS JUMP+CROUCH ONE IS IMPORTANT, I CANNOT STRESS THAT ENOUGH.
5). I sent both boxes and plasma pellets through blue portals and was fine. YOU may not pass through a blue portal. Just about anything else can.
6). Grabbing items through portals without entering them yourselves is risky as you have to get quite close to the portal. When done correctly, it's possible to do this without messing up the achievement, but I advise against it. Why make it any harder than it already is?

The bottom line is, this achievement is very picky. You better be damn sure you're doing it right ;)
