Accept Xbox 360 update with no controller

Our Xbox 360 controllers had their batteries die and where replaced.  Now upon console restart it is prompting whether we want to proceed with a system update.  Unfortunately the controllers are now not synced with the console so with controller we can't answer yes or no.  We're stuck at this menu. I've tried re-connecting both controllers, but the system does not appear able to accept new connections at this menu.   Any suggestions on how to proceed?  Buy a wired controller and try?

The system accepts controller sync at any 'screen'. It's hardware sync and isn't directly controlled by software. Press and hold the button. Alternatively you could disconnect it from the internet and try again.
