    So I am about to buy a new macbook air and will give my old one to my parents. Basically my old macbook pro has windows 7 installed with bootcamp alongside OS X 10.9. So I am going to use the migration assistant to transfer everything to the new mac and then wipe the OS X 10.9 and re-install the OS, will the bootcamp installation remain unaffected? Does migration assistant basically move everything like my xcode projects etc?

    A normal bootcamp install is on its own partition, so it should not be bothered by a reinstall of the OS on the other partition. That said, it seems like I often read on here about people having troubles doing this.

    Yes, Migration Assistant will move everything over including your Xcode projects.
