Automate windows update on new machine

Has anyone have a way to automate the window 7 updates on a new machine. Maybe a script that will run at boot time to run updates, install updates and reboot if necessary. And keep going until the system is up to date. I have a bunch of windows seven machines to build and don't want to babysit them every 5 mins to apply the updates.
I would like to set a script to run at start up and keep going till done so I can let the computer just do it's thing over night.
Any ideas would be helpful because it takes almost a day watching the updates

First, welcome to the Seven Forums.

The easiest way to do this would be to create an image on one PC, update it, and then deploy this image to all new rigs you need to set up. One way to it described here: Windows 7 Image - Customize in Audit Mode with Sysprep
