Memory, yes, all motherboards have a limit, but hard drives a bit more forgiving.
It depends on the controller and BIOS.......   drop NEC an email/call and ask....

I could just flash the BIOS and it would work?

Like xpd said it would be best for you to check with NEC what your machine's BIOS version supports in terms of hard drive sizes.  And like xpd said the IDE controller type is important.  It may not be compatible with the drive you bought so you'll have to find that out too.
