It is for the HP 3D Drive Guard.
This is for a slightly different model of dv8, but it will work. I guess HP forgot to list one for your specific model number. I could not find it fro your support page anyway.
And here is a more recent version
I found this one for an HP Envy, but as mentioned it will work just fine for a dv8, or any other laptop with the HP 3D Drive Guard hardware.

Install HP 3D DriveGuard driver. I have HP 2560P. Installed Windows 7 64 Bit with same issue described above. Installed the driver from here: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=5071202&swLangOid=8&swEnvOid=4061 for HP2560P and the issue was resolved.
