That's only 6 strings... 7 string tuning (low to high) is BEADGBE.

i miss read the original post. i thought you were asking where in the tuning the low B went, but now after reading it again i realized you just wanted to know in what order you should tune them (the thread title )

You don't have a high B, you have a low B.

I've never personally bought into the flitting between strings theory on a Floyd - just start with the thickest strings and work up. The reason i do that is because the heavier strings have much more of an effect on the position of the bridge, the more you adjust them the more the bridge moves and the more the other strings are affected. Therefore I like to get those out of the way first, of course they still need adjusting, but something like a 3 semitone adjustment of the high E only translates to a tiny adjustment of the thickest string which is again going to have minimal effect on the other strings making it less of a headache to get them back in tune.

I start with the lowest string and tuner from there, as mr seagull said, they effect stability more so if you start with the high strings, the high strings will be out of tune by the time you have finished the low strings.
