Usually I leave some slack in mine when Im tightening it and kinda pull it up from the fretboard a bit, make sure that they get wrapped around the pegs properly and that they arent slipping at all as this will cause constant tuning issues. If your using a new string size your floyd may have to be adjusted.

however, i would advise with it being a floyd that you tune each string a little at a time - if you tune 1 to pitch then it'll just snap under the pressure, and when you tune the others it'll be out neway.

then once you've got it to pitch, if youve gone up a string size then it sounds like the bridge wont be sitting flush with the body - go into the back of the guitar, and turn the screws a little till its closer to where you want it to be (EDIT: the plate that your string saddles sit on should be flat in relation to the body or pretty much flat)- then re tune, then screw more, then tune - takes a while

your action also may be off, but thats easily solved by adjusting the saddles
