Tuning Question - How to tune a jem7d

Here is a bit of a beginner question for you all, and im sorry if its tedious but, about three weeks ago i had my jem7d set up by a professional, the action was set it was restrung and tuned. *However i broke a string, changed strings (and scratched the headstock with the low e string a little AHHHH!) but now im having an impossible time tuning this floyd rose tremolo. *Ive heard you are supposed to start out with low e, then tune a, then back to low e again, then a, then d, then back to low e a d all over and keep repeating until the guitar is almost perfectly in tune before tightening the string clamps. *Now i know the tremolo is set up correctly and by the time i am able to get all the strings to be in tune, the floyd rose is at a crazy angle almost 30 degrees, not close to parallel like it should be. *So i figured that isnt the way to do it. *Can anyone please give me some help on this? *This has been bugging me for the past few days. *Thank you very much for your time and help! * *-Kyle

Tuning Question

This has got to be the most Frequently Asked Question this month.

First make sure you didn't tune the low E an octave high.
