I have a CentOS 7 with a Boot Partition of 400M as number 1. And after that I have a root Partition of 50G as number 2. What would be the steps to extend the Boot volume with parted or so ?

Kind regards.

Using any backup utility you'd like, You would need to backup your root partition to another drive. Then you can reinstall CentOS with a larger boot partition.

Before you do all that, You should attempt to clean up your boot partition and remove the extra files.

CentOS 7 package-cleanup -y --oldkernels --count=1 && package-cleanup -y --cleandupes

CentOS 8+ dnf remove --duplicates
