Assuming you have backups, if something should go south, you might want to try 
out the Gparted boot-iso.

Using Gparted you should be able to shrink some of the other partitions, and 
then grow the boot partition.

More info on:

If you have another non-critical computer to test using Gparted on, do that 
first before doing it "for real".

Hope this helps.
