[SOLVED] How to distinguish between two same size disks in fdisk

Hello everyone, I'm currently trying to install Arch in a VM, and also writing my own adapted Guide how to do it. And there is a question I have:
During disk partitioning. If I have two equal size disks, let say 2TB each. How do I distinguish between them using fdisk or cfdisk?
What I want is to know that for example /dev/sda is HDD on SATA port 0 and /dev/sdb is HDD on SATA port 1.
Or alternatively - /dev/sda is HDD with Serial number 939202393920, so that I could put a stickers on my HDD to know which is where.
[SOLVED]

Ok now I feel myself stupid. I literally had an answer in another tab, but did not scroll enough to see it.
lsblk -o name,model,serial
Sorry guys!!
