What is the model number of your power supply? How old is it?. You installed a hard drive in your computer and now it will not shut down properly. Did you install all the motherboard drivers? You have removed an SSD drive which can no longer be detected by the bios or device manager. Why did you un-install the graphics card drivers? You installed Windows on your HDD after removing SSD, did you install all the drivers for the motherboard?
Seems to me the only thing left is either a faulty power supply or motherboard which is not turning off the PSU.

PSU is a 650w TX2. It's also 2 weeks old.

I installed every motherboard driver I could find since Airlock does not bundle them altogether for some reason.

I uninstalled the GNU drivers so I could roll them back to a previous version as suggested here.

After installing to the HDD, I once again updated every relevant driver.

OK. Are there any yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager? You really need to try another power supply at this point to rule that out. Are there any bios updates for your motherboard? If it is still the same after another power supply it can only be the power down signal from the motherboard is missing (or of course if the PSU is bad it has been ignoring the command).
It is certainly a peculiar problem that is for sure. But that is why you are here!
