Pre P.S. From what I read online, sharing your UUID is not really a security issue, but if I just basically shared my social security number, please do tell.
Before I ask this, I'm a PC person and got this computer for school use, so please excuse my lack of Mac knowledge. Also, I understand that this question has been asked 10+ times, so please read my question fully and refer to my posted pictures to see the difference before flagging.
My Dad has had his old Macbook Pro sitting in a cabinet for 1-2 years at work since he got his new one. I'm not sure exactly what year it is, but I know it's a 17" and one of the first Retina displays. The computer has not been charged or turned on for those years. That information is just for if it's helpful.
I'm trying to install OS X Yosemite off of a 64GB Lexar flash drive (which you'll see in Disk Utility), however roughly 99.9% of the hard drive space seems to go towards Apple Core Storage, which is in Macintosh HD, while the other .01% is in the Recovery HD. Due to this, I cannot partition the hard drive to install Yosemite.
Here is the terminal window when I type in 'diskutil cs list' (top), and then terminal when I type in 'diskutil list' (bottom).
When I take the Local Volume Group UUID, and insert it into the command to change the amount of storage that Apple Core Storage takes ('diskutil cs resizeStack [AppleCoreStorage UUID] 700g'), I get the following error:
Below are a few pictures of my Disk Utility. Please notice that 'Macintosh HD' is alone. There is no tab under it like I see in other people's questions. I feel like this has to do with why it will not let me partition the Hard Drive. Also, I think that it all goes back to not being able to resize the Apple Core Storage
When I verify the disks it all appears to be okay, as well.
