As it turns out this model of hard-drive comes with (Power Up In Standby) or PUIS features enabled by default.

To fix this boot a live install of arch linux then find the disk in question using fdisk -l. Once you have found the corresponding path Ex: /dev/sdX use the command hdparm -s 0 /dev/sdX to disable PUIS. Then enter the command sync and finaly shutdown.

Then simply wait for the machine to stop completely before removing the usb and starting the computer.
