    As far as your hard drive goes, your Operating System determines file order.  No matter what you do in Lightroom, the OS will determin based upon your choices how the files will be ordered. If you want them to be in order, you should probably adopt a renaming convention in your export that names the exported files similarly followed by a sequence number.  File01, File 02, etc. Then set your viewer (Finder/Explorer) to sort by File Name in ascending order.
