I no longer own the 8300 so unfortunately I can't test what will work for that audio codec and Catalina. You could look at Sniki's HP 8300 guide to see what he's doing in Catalina to enable that.I updated macOS to Catalina and tried this after the update. Didn't work. I don't think I have installed Voodoo or AppleHDA Disable kexts.
Special Note macOS Catalina is still in pubic beta so bugs are expected ! Please do not post issues that are related to the macOS pubic Beta about your X,Y,Z application crashing or not working. Introduction Welcome to my HP 8300 & 6300 (all form factors) macOS Catalina guide. The inspiration...
Note for you or anyone that wants to try that UEFI hotpatching method for Catalina, if you want to use that guide a clean install is mandatory for it to work. You can't simply upgrade from Mojave installed with this guide to Catalina and that guide. They are very different approaches to hackintoshing the HP 8300. Sniki has now switched to Virtualsmc instead of Fakesmc and that alone makes the two guides incompatible.
Test out installing Catalina via Sniki's guide I've linked above. Remove your Mojave SSD and install to a clean new SSD and compare the results. Anyone with a medium level of hackintosh experience can implement that guide. It doesn't use Unibeast or Multibeast but is clearly written and easy to follow.
