    I don't have a 10.10 installer, but the Yosemite 10.10.2 installer requires 7.84 GB for the default, clean install.

    I suspect that does not account for the other two partitions that would always be created with a Yosemite install, which would need another 860MB, more or less.

    What type of device are you trying to install 10.10 on?

    Apple lists the minimum storage requirement as 8GB: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201475
