Yosemite turns its partition into a core storage volume that can't be manipulated normally in Disk Util and that may be contributing to you issue.

Run the command below in Terminal and post up the results so we can see how the partitions are configured and try to help you out.

Code:
diskutil cs list

Okay.... you don't have any core storage volumes there like I mentioned, so that's not the issue. Try the command-r boot to recovery and Disk Util from there like theSeb suggested.

If that does not work, run this command in Terminal and tell us what it says.

Code:
diskutil list

Have you tried to log into the recovery partition and then repartition from Disk Utility?
I get the same error in recovery, here is the command
