Windows Server 2012R2 Image for Openstack - Windows Updates

I created a Windows Server 2012R2 Image for deploying instances in Openstack. I installed cloudbase-init and have run sysprep. With this created image I do not have a problem to deploy instances from it but I do have a question regarding Windows Updates on the newly created instance:

How is it possible to have the Windows system installing all new Windows Updates during first boot (i.e. when the hostname, Admin password and so on is created)?

Is cloudbase-init capable of doing this? If yes, what do I have to do to have a Windows Server instance deployed that has all the available Windows Updates included before the system asks the user to reset the Administrator password?
