This is why I use a tool called WSUS Offline update when I have to wipe/restore a machine. You can download the updates ONCE(and then update the collection periodically), and the program can apply them by itself. All you have to do is start the process and walk away(for both original download of updates and installing said updates).
EDIT: I should note, you want to do this on ANOTHER computer or storage device, so you don't lose all that data(it downloads A LOT in order to be prepared for just about anything) when you wipe.
