LM hashes are split into two 0-7 lengths, 14char's maximum... and is
Case insensitive (all uppercase)

1234567=0182BD0BD4444BF8AAD3B435B51404EE (LM)
And 1234567hhhhhHH =0182BD0BD4444BF880F0CCFF038BF74 (LM)
(cracked it would be 1234567 & HHHHHHH)
Here are the two halves... 0182BD0BD4444BF8      880F0CCFF038BF74

NTLM on the other hand is case sensitive, so the same password
would crack to the case sensitive version (1234567hhhhhHH)
66502AB0AEE4EDC749D62E91EF650C7B (NTLM)
So if you see "NO PASSWORD" in a pwdump file it's because
these hashes were present:
31D6CFE0D16AE931B73C59D7E0C089C0 (NTLM)
AAD3B435B51404EEAAD3B435B51404EE (LM)
